Overview


This lab manual, created to accompany Introduction to Electric Circuits: Lab Manual, Ninth Edition (9780195438130), is suitable for introductory electric circuits courses offered through electrical technologist- and electrical technician-level programs.

The manual contains a collection of experiments chosen to cover the main topics taught in foundational courses in electrical theory. Experiments can all be done with inexpensive test equipment and circuit components. Each lab concludes with questions to test students' comprehension of the theoretical concepts illustrated by the experimental results. The manual is formatted to enable it to double as a workbook, which allows students to answer questions directly in the lab manual.

DISTINCTIVE FEATURES

Increased Coverage of AC and DC Motors and Filters. The lab manual has been revised to illustrate the updated material in Introduction to Electric Circuits, Ninth Edition, including thirteen DC and fifteen AC experiments and a new lab on passive filters.

Designed for Students. Designed with students in mind, the text is spiral-bound for ease of use. It has been formatted in a way that allows students to use it as a workbook--including space to record experimental results and grids for graphing when necessary.

Accessible. Each lab contains clear objectives, a brief summary of the necessary concepts to understand the experiment being conducted, illustrated instructions for use of equipment (such as ammeters), detailed procedural instructions with tips to ensure that students complete labs smoothly and effectively, and questions that allow students to check their understanding of the key concepts being illustrated by each lab.

Instructor-Friendly. The manual includes a summary of all equipment and components required to run every lab in the book, allowing instructors to prepare their courses ahead of time.

Meet the Author

Herbert W. Jackson published the first edition of Introduction to Electric Circuits in 1959. Known as "the father of the Ontario college system", Jackson taught electronics and electrical engineering technology for more than forty years. In addition to authoring Introduction to Electric Circuits--a text that would become the industry standard and shape curricula for years to follow--Jackson was a member of the Ontario Ministry of Education, where he oversaw the creation of the province's community colleges.

Dale Temple teaches electronics engineering technology at the College of the North Atlantic, where he has served as coordinator of the electronics program. Prior to working on Introduction to Electric Circuits, Temple contributed as a coauthor to the Canadian editions of Boylestad and Nashelsky's Electronic Devices and Theory and Tocci's Digital Systems: Principles and Applications.

Brian Kelly is formerly an instructor at the College of the North Atlantic, where, in addition to teaching, he served as coordinator for the introductory circuit analysis course.
