The first edition of Electric Circuits, an introductory circuits text, was pub- lished in 1983. It included 100 worked examples and about 600 problems. It did not include a student workbook, supplements for PSpice or MultiSim, or any web support. Support for instructors was limited to a solution man- ual for the problems and enlarged copies of many text figures, suitable for making transparencies.
Much has changed in the 31 years since Electric Circuits first appeared, and during that time this text has evolved to better meet the needs of both students and their instructors. As an example, the text now includes about 150 worked examples, about 1850 problems, and extensive supplements and web content. The tenth edition is designed to revise and improve the material presented in the text, in its supplements, and on the web. Yet the fundamental goals of the text are unchanged. These goals are:
• To build an understanding of concepts and ideas explicitly in terms of previous learning. Students are constantly challenged by the need to layer new concepts on top of previous concepts they may still be struggling to master.This text provides an important focus on helping students understand how new concepts are related to and rely upon concepts previously presented.
• To emphasize the relationship between conceptual understanding and problem-solving approaches. Developing problem-solving skills continues to be the central challenge in a first-year circuits course. In this text we include numerous Examples that present problem- solving techniques followed by Assessment Problems that enable students to test their mastery of the material and techniques intro- duced. The problem-solving process we illustrate is based on con- cepts rather than the use of rote procedures. This encourages students to think about a problem before attempting to solve it.
• To provide students with a strong foundation of engineering prac- tices. There are limited opportunities in a first-year circuit analysis course to introduce students to realistic engineering experiences. We continue to take advantage of the opportunities that do exist by including problems and examples that use realistic component values and represent realizable circuits. We include many problems related to the Practical Perspective problems that begin each chapter. We also include problems intended to stimulate the students’ interest in engineering, where the problems require the type of insight typical of a practicing engineer.
WHY THIS EDITION? The tenth edition revision of Electric Circuits began with a thorough review of the text. This review provided a clear picture of what matters most to instructors and their students and led to the following changes:
• Problem solving is fundamental to the study of circuit analysis. Having a wealth of new problems to assign and work is a key to suc- cess in any circuits course. Therefore, existing end-of-chapter prob- lems were revised, and new end-of-chapter problems were added. As a result, more than 40% of the problems in the tenth edition have never appeared in any previous edition of the text.
• Both students and instructors want to know how the generalized techniques presented in a first-year circuit analysis course relate to problems faced by practicing engineers. The Practical Perspective problems provide this connection between circuit analysis and the real world. We have created new Practical Perspective problems for Chapters 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, and 10. Many of the new problems represent the world of the 21st century. Each Practical Perspective problem is solved, at least in part, at the end of the chapter, and additional end- of-chapter problems can be assigned to allow students to explore the Practical Perspective topic further.
• The PSpice and Multisim manuals have been revised to include screenshots from the most recent versions of these software simula- tion applications. Each manual presents the simulation material in the same order as the material is presented in the text. These manu- als continue to include examples of circuits to be simulated that are drawn directly from the text. The text continues to indicate end-of- chapter problems that are good candidates for simulation using either PSpice or Multisim.
• Students who could benefit from additional examples and practice problems can use the Student Workbook, which has been revised to reflect changes to the tenth edition of the text. This workbook has examples and problems covering the following material: balancing power, simple resistive circuits, node voltage method, mesh current method, Thévenin and Norton equivalents, op amp circuits, first- order circuits, second-order circuits, AC steady-state analysis, and Laplace transform circuit analysis.
• The Student Workbook now includes access to Video Solutions, complete, step-by-step solution walkthroughs to representative homework problems.
• Learning Catalytics, a “bring your own device” student engagement, assessment, and classroom intelligence system is now available with the tenth edition. With Learning Catalytics you can: • Use open-ended questions to get into the minds of students to
understand what they do or don’t know and adjust lectures accordingly.
• Use a wide variety of question types to sketch a graph, annotate a circuit diagram, compose numeric or algebraic answers, and more.
• Access rich analytics to understand student performance. • Use pre-built questions or add your own to make Learning
Catalytics fit your course exactly.

HALLMARK FEATURES Chapter Problems Users of Electric Circuits have consistently rated the Chapter Problems as one of the book’s most attractive features. In the tenth edition, there are over 1650 end-of-chapter problems with approximately 40% that have never appeared in a previous edition. Problems are organized at the end of each chapter by section.
Practical Perspectives The tenth edition continues the use of Practical Perspectives introduced with the chapter openers.They offer examples of real-world circuits, taken from real-world devices. The Practical Perspectives for six of the chapters are brand new to this edition. Every chapter begins with a brief descrip- tion of a practical application of the material that follows. Once the chap- ter material is presented, the chapter concludes with a quantitative analysis of the Practical Perspective application. A group of end-of-chap- ter problems directly relates to the Practical Perspective application. Solving some of these problems enables you to understand how to apply the chapter contents to the solution of a real-world problem.
Assessment Problems Each chapter begins with a set of chapter objectives. At key points in the chapter, you are asked to stop and assess your mastery of a particular objective by solving one or more assessment problems. The answers to all of the assessment problems are given at the conclusion of each problem, so you can check your work. If you are able to solve the assessment problems for a given objective, you have mastered that objective. If you need more practice, several end-of-chapter problems that relate to the objective are suggested at the conclusion of the assessment problems.
Examples Every chapter includes many examples that illustrate the concepts presented in the text in the form of a numeric example. There are nearly 150 examples in this text. The examples are intended to illus- trate the application of a particular concept, and also to encourage good problem-solving skills.
Fundamental Equations and Concepts Throughout the text, you will see fundamental equations and concepts set apart from the main text.This is done to help you focus on some of the key principles in electric circuits and to help you navigate through the important topics.
Integration of Computer Tools Computer tools can assist students in the learning process by providing a visual representation of a circuit’s behavior, validating a calculated solu- tion, reducing the computational burden of more complex circuits, and iterating toward a desired solution using parameter variation.This compu- tational support is often invaluable in the design process.The tenth edition includes the support of PSpice® and Multisim®, both popular computer tools for circuit simulation and analysis. Chapter problems suited for exploration with PSpice and Multisim are marked accordingly.
Design Emphasis The tenth edition continues to support the emphasis on the design of cir- cuits in many ways. First, many of the Practical Perspective discussions focus on the design aspects of the circuits. The accompanying Chapter Problems continue the discussion of the design issues in these practical examples. Second, design-oriented Chapter Problems have been labeled explicitly, enabling students and instructors to identify those problems with a design focus. Third, the identification of problems suited to explo- ration with PSpice or Multisim suggests design opportunities using these
software tools. Fourth, some problems in nearly every chapter focus on the use of realistic component values in achieving a desired circuit design. Once such a problem has been analyzed, the student can proceed to a lab- oratory to build and test the circuit, comparing the analysis with the meas- ured performance of the actual circuit.
Accuracy All text and problems in the tenth edition have undergone our strict hallmark accuracy checking process, to ensure the most error-free book possible.

PREREQUISITES In writing the first 12 chapters of the text, we have assumed that the reader has taken a course in elementary differential and integral calculus. We have also assumed that the reader has had an introductory physics course, at either the high school or university level, that introduces the concepts of energy, power, electric charge, electric current, electric poten- tial, and electromagnetic fields. In writing the final six chapters, we have assumed the student has had, or is enrolled in, an introductory course in differential equations.
COURSE OPTIONS The text has been designed for use in a one-semester, two-semester, or a three-quarter sequence.
• Single-semester course: After covering Chapters 1–4 and Chapters 6–10 (omitting Sections 7.7 and 8.5) the instructor can choose from Chapter 5 (operational amplifiers), Chapter 11 (three-phase circuits), Chapters 13 and 14 (Laplace methods), and Chapter 18 (Two-Port Circuits) to develop the desired emphasis.
• Two-semester sequence: Assuming three lectures per week, the first nine chapters can be covered during the first semester, leaving Chapters 10–18 for the second semester.
• Academic quarter schedule: The book can be subdivided into three parts: Chapters 1–6, Chapters 7–12, and Chapters 13–18.
The introduction to operational amplifier circuits in Chapter 5 can be omitted without interfering with the reading of subsequent chapters. For example, if Chapter 5 is omitted, the instructor can simply skip Section 7.7, Section 8.5, Chapter 15, and those assessment problems and end-of- chapter problems in the chapters following Chapter 5 that pertain to oper- ational amplifiers.
There are several appendixes at the end of the book to help readers make effective use of their mathematical background. Appendix A reviews Cramer’s method of solving simultaneous linear equations and simple matrix algebra; complex numbers are reviewed in Appendix B;Appendix C contains additional material on magnetically coupled coils and ideal trans- formers;Appendix D contains a brief discussion of the decibel;Appendix E is dedicated to Bode diagrams; Appendix F is devoted to an abbreviated table of trigonometric identities that are useful in circuit analysis; and an abbreviated table of useful integrals is given in Appendix G. Appendix H provides tables of common standard component values for resistors, induc- tors, and capacitors, to be used in solving many end-of-chapter problems. Selected Answers provides answers to selected end-of-chapter problems.
