Electricity, Fundamentals of
Fundamentals of Electricity gives students a basic understanding of electrical principles and their real world applications. From an introduction to the basic concepts of work, energy and charge, students proceed to a study of various types of circuits and the use of electromagnetism, capacitors, inductors and transformers. No previous knowledge of electricity is assumed. Students are required to have completed Algebra 1 as a prerequisite for taking this course. The math required for solving electrical problems is explained in detail with examples. In completing this subject students are required, among other activities, to calculate the efficiency of a motor and of a transformer, determine resistance, read circuit diagrams and determine circuit values, conduct a loop analysis of a circuit, use standard theorems to analyze circuits, and calculate voltage across a capacitor. There are 7 examinations in Fundamentals of Electricity. Fowler, Electricity: Principles and Applications, McGraw-Hill.
