Add some SPARK to your study of ELECTRICITY
Having trouble understanding the fundamentals of electricity? Problem solved! Electricity Demystified, Second Edition, makes it shockingly easy to learn the basic concepts.
Written in a step-by-step format, this practical guide begins by covering direct current (DC), voltage, resistance, circuits, cells, and batteries. The book goes on to discuss alternating current (AC), power supplies, wire, and cable. Magnetism and electromagnetic effects are also addressed. Detailed examples and concise explanations make it easy to understand the material. End-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam help reinforce key concepts.
It’s a no-brainer! You’ll learn about:
- Ohm’s Law, power, and energy
- Kirchhoff’s Laws
- Electrochemical energy
- Electricity in the home
- Protecting electronic equipment
- Electromagnetic interference
- Practical magnetism
Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Electricity Demystified, Second Edition, powers up your understanding of this essential subject.
About the Author
Stan Gibilisco has authored or co-authored more than 50 nonfiction books in the fields of electronics, general science, mathematics, and computing. He has worked as a technical writer in industry, as a shortwave radio broadcast station technician, as a radio-frequency design engineer, and as a magazine editor. One of Stan’s books, the Encyclopedia of Electronics (TAB Books, 1985), was named by the American Library Association (ALA) in its list of “Best References of the 1980s.” Another of his books, the McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Personal Computing (McGraw-Hill, 1995), was named as a “Best Reference of 1996” by the ALA. Stan is considered the “father” of the DeMYSTiFieD series.
This edition features worked examples in every chapter that explained how to use the theory presented in the text to solve different kinds of problems. The text uses a vectors-first approach to explain electrostatics, magnetostatics, fields, waves, and applications like transmission lines, waveguide, and antennas. It also provides a balanced presentation of time-varying and statics field, preparing students for employment in today’s industrial and manufacturing sectors.
The authors present the background, notation, and nomenclature essential for students to understand the various and independent technical approaches, that exist in the field of mechanism, kinematics, and dynamics. Coverage of all analysis and development methods is balanced, with the use of both analytic and graphic tools. This text is ideal for undergraduate students of mechanical engineering.
