Electricity by Ralph Morrison

Book Description

Learn electricity at your own pace What makes a light bulb work? What overloads a fuse? How does a magnetic field differ from an electrical field? With Electricity: A Self-Teaching Guide, you'll discover the answers to these questions and many more about this powerful, versatile force that everyone uses, yet most of us don't understand. Ralph Morrison demystifies electricity, taking you through the basics step by step. Significantly updated to cover the latest in electrical technology, this easy-to-use guide makes familiar the workings of voltage, current, resistance, power, and other circuit values. You'll discover where electricity comes from, how electric fields cause current to flow, how we harness its tremendous power, and how best to avoid the various pitfalls in many practical applications when the time comes for you to put your knowledge to work. The clearly structured format of Electricity makes it fully accessible, providing an easily understood, comprehensive overview for everyone from the student to the engineer to the hobbyist. Like all Self-Teaching Guides, Electricity allows you to build gradually on what you have learned-at your own pace. Questions and self-tests reinforce the information in each chapter and allow you to skip ahead or focus on specific areas of concern. Packed with useful, up-to-date information, this clear, concise volume is a valuable learning tool and reference source for anyone who wants to improve his or her understanding of basic electricity.

Grounding and Shielding by Ralph Morrison Grounding and Shielding, Hardback (March 2016)

Applies basic field behavior in circuit design and demonstrates how it relates to grounding and shielding requirements and techniques in circuit design This book connects the fundamentals of electromagnetic theory to the problems of interference in all types of electronic design.

Digital Circuit Boards by Ralph Morrison Digital Circuit Boards, Hardback (June 2012)

This book features a unique, practical approach to the design of high-speed digital circuit boards. It provides designers with the tools they need to lay out digital circuit boards for fast logic and to get designs working the first time around.

Practical Electronics by Ralph Morrison Practical Electronics, Paperback (November 2003)

This completely updated third edition of Electronics teaches you the basics of electricity and electronic components --- transistors, capacitors, diodes, resistors, and integrated circuits --- in a self-paced, self-instructional format, without assuming any prior electronics experience.

Fields of Electronics by Ralph Morrison Fields of Electronics, Hardback (April 2002)

Circuit Theory and Field Theory are usually taught in separate courses. Electromagnetic field theory is an important part of basic physics. Because it is a very mathematical subject, the connection to everyday problems is not emphasized. Circuit theory on the other hand is by its very nature very practical.
