CATALOG DESCRIPTION: Voltage, current, resistance, Ohm’s law, Kirchhoff’s laws,
resistance combinations, and Thevenin’s, Norton’s, and superposition theorems are studied. DC
and AC circuits are studied and utilized with basic AC terminology described. The performance
of ideal transformers, capacitors and inductors, and first order RLC circuits are investigated.
Fundamental analog electronic circuits are utilized in the lecture and laboratory to enhance the
understanding of basic laws and theorems.
MAJOR COURSE LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Upon successful completion of this course, the
student will be expected to:
1. Recognize and apply basic electrical/electronics units and terminology, including prefix
notation, charge, current, voltage, resistance, conductance, energy, power, capacitance and
2. Utilize the scientific calculator to solve electronics circuit problems.
3. Identify and apply electronic devices and their corresponding schematic symbols, including
voltage and current sources (AC and DC), resistors, potentiometers, transformers, capacitors,
inductors, and, in the laboratory, diodes, light emitting diodes, bipolar junction transistors,
and op amps.
4. Calculate node voltage, convert DC voltage sources to bubble notation, and distinguish
between electrical, common, and chassis ground.
5. Distinguish between real and ideal voltage and current sources and properly model real
6. Identify and calculate basic parameters and sketch the sine, triangle, and square wave.
7. State, apply and discuss the historical significance of the laws and rules of
electrical/electronic circuit analysis i
