First course in a two-semester algebra-based electric circuit analysis sequence for majors in Electrical Technology, and others interested in a course of this level. Topics include voltage, current, resistance, Ohm's law, resistor combination, Kirchoff's laws, power, source conversion, capacitance, superposition, mesh and nodal analysis, Thevenin's and Norton's theorems. Computer analysis of DC circuits introduced. Concurrent lab applies classroom theory, teaches use of multimeters and power supplies, and introduces the oscilloscope, breadboarding, schematic reading and troubleshooting. Two class hours, four laboratory hours, one conference hour. A scientific calculator is required. Contact the department for details.
Prerequisite: Three years high school math or MTH 135 or MTH 098/104/164.
