Part of the popular Science of Electronics series, DC/AC presents clear and comprehensive coverage of fundamental elements of DC/AC circuits with a strong emphasis on the science and necessary math. Concepts are well supported by many worked out examples and illustrations. Instruments such as digital oscilloscopes (as well as the analog scope) and the function generator are covered in detail. In addition to passive circuit coverage, there are discussions of programmable logic controllers, motors, and generators, as well as other devices. The volume examines mathematics for electronics, electrical quantities and measurements, Ohm's law and Watt's law, series and parallel circuits, combinational series/parallel circuits, magnetism and magnetic circuits, motors and generators, sine waves, capacitors, inductors, series and parallel ac circuits and transducers. For electronics technicians and assemblers or operators.
