Principles of Electric Circuits: Conventional Current Version, 10th edition

  • Thomas L Floyd
  • David M. Buchla


For courses in DC/AC circuits: conventional flow.

Complete, accessible introduction to DC/AC circuits
Principles of Electric Circuits: Conventional Current Version provides a uniquely clear introduction to fundamental circuit laws and components, using math only when needed for understanding. Floyd’s acclaimed coverage of troubleshooting – combined with exercises, examples, and illustrations – gives students the problem-solving experience they need to step outside the classroom and into a job. The 10th edition has been heavily modified to improve readability and clarity and to update the text to reflect developments in technology since the last edition. This edition also adds new step-by-step procedures for solving problems with the TI-84 Plus CE graphing calculator.
