ETRIC128 - Electrical Math

This course focuses on electronic formulas and solutions. Resistance of wires, types, and sizes are applied to voltage drop calculations, transformers, and meter movements.  The course focuses on both DC and AC theories including the atom structure, energy sources, Ohm's Law, Kirchhoff's laws, network theorems, magnetism, electromagnetism, alternating voltage and current, and reactivate components.  Laboratory application assignments will be completed using simulations.
