Lecture Hours: 3 Lab Hours: 3 Credits: 4

Description: This course is a study of resistance, voltage, current, power and energy in series, parallel, and series-parallel circuits using Ohm’s Law, Kirchhoff’s laws, and circuit theorems. Circuits are analyzed using mathematics and verified using electrical instruments.

Prerequisite(s): Take ENG 100  and MAT 102  and RDG 100 .
Corequisite(s): Take MAT 110  .
Course Topics:
  • Simple series circuits using proper units, prefixes, and notation.
  • Complex DC series circuits.
  • Simple parallel DC circuits.
  • Combinations DC series-parallel circuits.
  • DC circuits using network theorems.
  • Electromagnetic circuits.

Grading System:
An overall grade of C or higher is required for transferability.

A =  90 - 100
B =   80 - 89
C =   70 - 79
D =   60 - 69
F =     0 - 59
