Electric Circuits, Eighth Edition features a new design,a four-color format, and 80% of chapter problems have been updated. In the midst of these changes, the book retains the goals that have made it a best-seller: 1) To build an understanding of concepts and ideas explicitly in terms of previous learning; 2) To emphasize the relationship between conceptual understanding and problem solving approaches; 3) To provide readers with a strong foundation of engineering practices.

Chapter topics include Circuit Variables; Circuit Elements; Simple Resistive Circuits; Techniques of Circuit Analysis; The Operational Amplifier; Inductors, Capacitors, and Mutual Inductance; Response of First-Order RL and RC Circuits; Natural and Step Responses of RLC Circuits; Sinusoidal Steady-State Analysis; and more.

For anyone interested in circuit analysis.


A textbook for electrical engineering students that assumes a background in electrical physics and elementary differential and integral calculus. Material covered includes operational amplifiers, balanced three-phase circuits, sinusoidal steady-state analysis, the Laplace transform, frequency selective circuits, and the Fourier transform.
