PrefaceThe central theme of Introduction to Electric Circuits is the concept that electric circuits are partof the basic fabric of modern technology. Given this theme, we endeavor to show how theanalysis and design of electric circuits are inseparably intertwined with the ability of the engineerto design complex electronic, communication, computer, and control systems as well as consumerproducts.Approach and OrganizationThis book is designed for a one- to three-term course in electric circuits or linear circuit analysis and isstructured for maximum flexibility. The flowchart in Figure 1 demonstrates alternative chapterorganizations that can accommodate different course outlines without disrupting continuity.The presentation is geared to readers who are being exposed to the basic concepts of electriccircuits for the first time, and the scope of the work is broad. Students should come to the course with thebasic knowledge of differential and integral calculus.This book endeavors to prepare the reader to solve realistic problems involving electric circuits.Thus, circuits are shown to be the results of real inventions and the answers to real needs in industry, theoffice, and the home. Although the tools of electric circuit analysis may be partially abstract, electriccircuits are the building blocks of modern society. The analysis and design of electric circuits are criticalskills for all engineers.What’s New in the 9th EditionRevisions to Improve ClarityChapter 10, covering AC circuits, has been largely rewritten to improve clarity of exposition.In addition, revisions have been made through the text to improve clarity. Sometimes these revisionsare small, involving sentences or paragraphs. Other larger revisions involved pages or even entiresections. Often these revisions involve examples. Consequently, the 9th edition contains 36 newexamples.More ProblemsThe 9th edition contains 180 new problems, bringing the total number of problems to more than 1,400.This edition uses a variety of problem types and they range in difficulty from simple to challenging,including: Straightforward analysis problems. Analysis of complicated circuits.Simple design problems. (For example, given a circuit and the specified response, determine therequired RLC values.) Compare and contrast, multipart problems that draw attention to similarities or differences betweentwo situations. MATLAB and PSpice problems. Design problems. (Given some specifications, devise a circuit that satisfies those specifications.)How Can We Check . . . ? (Verify that a solution is indeed correct.)xi

Also, each example has a title that directs the student to exactly what isbeing illustrated in that particular example.Various methods of solving problems are incorporated into select examples. These cases showstudents that multiple methods can be used to derive similar solutions or, in some cases, that multiplesolutions can be correct. This helps students build the critical thinking skills necessary to discern thebest choice between multiple outcomes.Much attention has been given to using PSpice and MATLAB to solve circuits problems. Twoappendices, one introducing PSpice and the other introducing MATLAB, briefly describe thecapabilities of the programs and illustrate the steps needed to get started using them. Next, PSpice

PrefacexiiiPSpiceF, TORAGEELEMENTSTHE COMPLETERESPONSE OFRL AND :Primary flowChapterAppendixOptional flowand MATLAB are used throughout the text to solve various circuit analysis and design problems. Forexample, PSpice is used in Chapter 5 to find a Th evenin equivalent circuit and in Chapter 15 to representcircuit inputs and outputs as Fourier series. MATLAB is frequently used to obtain plots of circuit inputsand outputs that help us to see what our equations are telling us. MALAB also helps us with some longand tedious arithmetic. For example, in Chapter 10, MATLAB helps us do the complex arithmetic thatwe must do in order to analyze ac circuits, and in Chapter 14, MATLAB helps with the partial fractionrequired to find inverse Laplace transforms.

xivPrefaceOf course, there’s more to using PSpice and MATLAB than simply running the programs. Wepay particular attention to interpreting the output of these computer programs and checking it to makesure that it is correct. Frequently, this is done in the section called “How Can We Check . . . ?” that isincluded in every chapter. For example, Section 8.9 shows how to interpret and check a PSpice“Transient Response,” and Section 13.7 shows how to interpret and check a frequency responseproduced using MATLAB or PSpice.Design Examples, a Problem-Solving Method, and“How Can We Check . . . ?” SectionsEach chapter concludes with a design example that uses the methods of that chapter to solve a designproblem. A formal five-step problem-solving method is introduced in Chapter 1 and then used in eachof the design examples. An important step in the problem-solving method requires you to checkyour results to verify that they are correct. Each chapter includes a section entitled “How Can WeCheck . . . ? ” that illustrates how the kind of results obtained in that chapter can be checked to ensurecorrectness.Key Equations and FormulasYou will find that key equations, formulas, and important notes have been called out in a shaded box tohelp you pinpoint critical information.Summarizing Tables and FiguresThe procedures and methods developed in this text have been summarized in certain key tables andfigures.

First, two sections (Sections 6.6 and 7.9) describe methods to design electric circuits thatimplement algebraic and differential equations. Second, numerous examples and problems throughoutthis book illustrate signal processing. The input and output signals of an electric circuit are explicitlyidentified in each of these examples and problems. These examples and problems investigate therelationship between the input and output signals that is imposed by the circuit.Interactive Examples and ExercisesNumerous examples throughout this book are labeled as interactive examples. This label indicates thatcomputerized versions of that example are available at the textbook’s companion site, Figure 2 illustrates the relationship between the textbook example and the computerizedexample available on the Web site. Figure 2a shows an example from Chapter 3. The problem presentedby the interactive example shown in Figure 2
