Excerpts

This seventh edition ofPrinciples of Electric Circuits: Conventional Current Versionprovides 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 multiple-choice 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 3-6 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.In addition to the EWB circuit simulations for Troubleshooting and Analysis problems that are available on the CD-ROM 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 www.prenhall.com/floyd . 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. Additional Features Full-color format Two-page chapter openers with a chapter outline, introduction, chapter objectives, and key terms list An introduction and objectives at the beginning of each section within a chapter A TECHnoIogy Theory into Practice (TECH TIP) feature at the end of most chapters Abundance of high-quality illustrations Short biographies of key figures in the history of electricity in several chapters. Many worked examples A Related Problem in each worked example with answers at the end of the chapter Section Reviews with answers at the end of the chapter Troubleshooting section in many chapters Self-test at the end of each chapter with answers at the end of the chapter Summary at the end of each chapter Formula list at the end of each chapter Sectionalized problem set for each chapter with the more difficult problems indicated by an asterisk. Answers to odd-numbered problems are at the end of the book. A comprehensive glossary at the end of the book that defines all boldface and key teams in the textbook The conventional direction of current is used. (An alternat
