Synopsis

This
course introduces the basic concepts and engineering methods of DC circuit
analysis. The contents include Ohm's Law, Kirchhoff's Law, series and parallel
circuits, Mesh and Nodal analysis, Superposition, Source Transformation, Thevenin’s
and Norton’s theorems, Capacitor, Inductor and responses of First^{ }Order
circuits.
