The laboratory investigations in this manual are designed to demonstrate the theoretical principles set out in the book Fundamentals of Electric Circuits, 7th edition. A total of 27 laboratory investigations are offered, demonstrating the circuits and theories discussed in the textbook. Each investigation can normally be completed within a two-hour period. The procedures contain some references to the textbook; however, all necessary circuit and connection diagrams are provided in the manual so that investigations can also be preformed without the textbook.


  • An introduction that briefly describes the investigation
  • A list of required equipment and components
  • Circuit diagrams and connection diagrams
  • Step-by-step procedures
  • A laboratory record sheet for recording data
  • An analysis section for processing data
