More About This Textbook
Overview
For DC/AC Circuits courses requiring a comprehensive, classroom tested text with an emphasis on troubleshooting and the practical application of DC/AC principles and concepts.
This text provides an exceptionally clear introduction to DC/AC circuits supported by superior exercises, examples, and illustrations and an emphasis on troubleshooting and applications. Throughout the text's coverage, the use of mathematics is limited to only those concepts that are needed for understanding. Floyd's acclaimed troubleshooting emphasis provides students with the problem solving experience they need to step out of the classroom and into a job!
Editorial Reviews
From The Critics
A textbook for a twoterm electronics course sequence in which dc topics are covered in the first term and ac topics are covered in the second term. Series, parallel, RC, RL, and RLC circuits are covered. The CDROM contains Electronics Workbench simulation circuit files, and new to the seventh edition, a corresponding set of Multisim circuit simulations. Annotation c.

Preface
This seventh edition of Principles of Electric Circuits: Conventional Current Version provides a complete and straightforward coverage of the basics of electrical components and circuits, with emphasis on analysis, applications, and troubleshooting. Many improvements have been made over the previous edition, but the coverage and organization remain the same. A new text design and layout enhance the text's appearance and usability.
New Features and Improvements
Troubleshooter Quiz. A multiplechoice quiz in the chapter end matter tests the student's grasp of what happens in a circuit as a result of certain changes or faults. The student must determine whether a specified quantity or parameter increases, decreases, or remains the same as a result of the introduction of a fault or a change in another circuit parameter. Answers are at the end of the chapter.
Engineering Notation. Chapter 1 includes an expanded coverage of engineering notation and the use of the calculator in scientific and engineering notation.
Electrical Safety. The topic of electrical safety is introduced in Chapter 2. It is supplemented by a feature called "Safety Note" located at appropriate points throughout the text and identified by a special logo.
Troubleshooting. An improved coverage of troubleshooting begins in Section 36 with an introduction. A systematic method called APM (analysis, planning, and measurement) is introduced and used in many of the troubleshooting sections and examples. Troubleshooting features are identified by a new logo.
Circuit Simulations. Inaddition to the EWB circuit simulations for Troubleshooting and Analysis problems that are available on the CDROM accompanying the textbook, Multisim circuits have been added. To avoid any backward compatibility issues, the EWB files have been retained for those who have not yet upgraded to Multisim.
Circuit Simulation Tutorials. The EWB and PSpice tutorials continue to be available on the website. In addition, Multisim tutorials are now available online. All of the tutorials can be downloaded for student use from .
Key Terms Terms. identified as most important in each chapter are listed in the chapter opener. Within the chapter, the key terms are in color boldface and indicated with a "key" icon. Each key term is defined at the end of the chapter and in the comprehensive glossary at the end of the book.
Answer Reminders. Notes to remind students where to find the answers to the various exercises and problems appear throughout each chapter.
