Introduction to Electric Circuits

Ninth Edition

Herbert W. Jackson, Dale Temple, and Brian Kelly

Acclaimed for its clear and concise explanations of difficult concepts, its comprehensive problem sets and exercises, and its authoritative coverage, Introduction to Electric Circuits, Ninth Edition, provides students with the latest developments in the field.

New to this Edition:

  • A free Multisim Circuit Simulation CD. Packaged with each copy of the text, this free CD includes more than 150 circuit simulations directly related to problems and examples in the book.
  • A new appendix. A new in-text appendix offers students a brief introduction to Multisim software and tips for working with the circuit simulations on the accompanying CD.
  • Multisim examples, problems, and icons. In-text Multisim examples and problems are marked with an icon that directs students to relevant material on the accompanying CD.
  • A new chapter on filters. Covering high-pass, low-pass, band-pass, and band-stop filters, this brand-new chapter (Ch. 26) offers students the information that they need in order to understand this important topic.
  • New problems and examples. Hundreds of new problems, exercises, and examples have been added to this edition; all problems carried over from previous editions have been thoroughly checked and revised.
  • Additional coverage of AC and DC motors and generators. In response to user feedback, this edition adds extensive new material on AC and DC motors and generators.
  • Problems graded according to difficulty. Each end-of-chapter problem includes an icon indicating its level of difficulty, allowing students to build upon their understanding gradually.
  • "Circuit Check" problem sets. Found throughout each chapter, these problem sets allow students to test their understanding of one section before moving on to the next one.
  • Practice quizzes. Found at the end of each chapter, these mini quizzes enable students to test their knowledge of chapter material. A complete answer key for each quiz is provided at the back of the book.
  • "Practical Circuits" boxes. This pedagogical feature introduces students to the practical applications of theoretical concepts.
  • Additional student and instructor resources. A comprehensive package of ancillary resources includes a Lab Manual for students (9780195438147), and an Instructor's Manual, solutions manual, PowerPoint slides, and test generator for instructors.
