Designed to give readers the "building blocks" of electricity concepts, the sequence of topics and practical applications in this book will provide a solid foundation in electron theory and movement, direct-current series circuits, parallel circuits, series-parallel circuits, voltage line drops, rotating machinery fundamentals, and more! Electricity 1: Devices, Circuits and Materials, 9th Edition follows the same user-friendly approach that made previous editions so effective, while incorporating updates based on the 2008 National Electrical CodeĀ®. Featuring current industry terminology, photographs of commonly used electrical equipment, and sample problems with solutions, this is an ideal choice for a first course in basic electricity, house wiring, or commercial installations.

Product Benefits:

  • a reader-friendly orientation to electrical principles is supplemented with detailed diagrams for visually-enhanced learning
  • real-world coverage includes modern applications of power installations, various types of electrical conductors and wire sizes, and present-day electrical devices and materials
  • current troubleshooting methods are explored to help develop critical-thinking skills
  • problems and solutions at the end of each unit help readers assess their understanding of essential concepts while helping to identify topics requiring further review
