A Few Notes on Complex Numbers
Purpose: The complex number system provides a means of mathematically expressing the the even roots of negative numbers. For example, while there is no problem

Unit 6
Introduction to Laplace Transform
Techniques in Circuit Analysis
In this unit we consider the application of Laplace Transforms to circuit analysis. A
relevant discussion of the one-sided Lapla
Unit 2
Inductance and Capacitance
Inductors and capacitors are devices which store energy:
Inductors store energy in magnetic elds eg., elds within a coil. According
to Faradays law, a time-varying m
Unit 3
Response of First-Order Systems
In this unit, we consider inductors or capacitors (but not both together) as elements
in circuits containing resistors. That is, we wish to examine resistor-indu

Response of Second-Order Systems
In this unit, we consider the natural and step responses of simple series and parallel
circuits containing resistors (R), inductors (L), and capacitors (C). The
