The Complete Lab Manual for Electricity / Edition 4 available in Paperback
Now today's readers can master the hands-on electrical skills needed for professional success with THE COMPLETE LABORATORY MANUAL FOR ELECTRICITY, 4E by best-selling author Stephen Herman. No matter what electrical theory book readers are using, THE COMPLETE LABORATORY MANUAL FOR ELECTRICITY offers the perfect fit with a logical progression of topics and meaningful, cost-effective experiments. Updated lab activities throughout this edition now incorporate the use of wirewound resistors rather than incandescent lamps. Learners explore all aspects of electrical concepts -- from basic electricity through AC theory, transformers, and motor controls. Each lab offers clear explanations, examples of the calculations, and step-by-step procedures. Trust THE COMPLETE LABORATORY MANUAL FOR ELECTRICITY, 4E as a stand-alone resource or ideal supplement (e.g., to the Delmar Standard Textbook of Electricity) for mastery of the hands-on electrical skills needed most.
