|Calendar Description||This one-semester lecture/lab course covers general electric circuit parameters and laws. Topics include: basic electric circuits, voltage and current sources, resistance, analysis of DC circuits, power considerations. Concepts of capacitance, inductance, and their transient behaviour. Introduction of AC sources, phasors, reactance and impedance, AC analysis of RC, RL, and RCL circuits, the effect of resonance, real and complex power in reactive loads.|
|Prerequisites||MTH140 and MTH141|
|Learning Objectives (Indicators)|
At the end of this course, the successful student will be able to:
NOTE:Numbers in parentheses refer to the graduate attributes required by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB).
3.0 hours of lecture per week for 13 weeks
Note: In order for a student to pass a course with "Theory and Laboratory" components, in addition to earning a minimum overall course mark of 50%, the student must pass the Laboratory and Theory portions separately by achieving a minimum of 50% in the combined Laboratory components and 50% in the combined Theory components. Please refer to the "Course Evaluation" section for details on the Theory and Laboratory components.
|Examinations||. The midterm is scheduled on Tuesday February 26th during regular lecture hours.|
2. The official final exam will be announced by the timetabling dept. Final exam includes materials discussed from beginning to the end.
|Other Evaluation Information||Students are encouraged to earn passing marks in both theory and lab components|
separately. In the absence of student’s lab portions with valid reasons and proper
documents submitted and verified by students’ department, the grades will be shifted
to final exam. As labs are hands-on, earning lab grades during the term is a lot
simpler than compensating lab grades in final exam.
2. The Midterm, makeup test, and the Final Exam are “closed book” and “closed course
note” exams. No formula sheet is allowed. Only university-approved calculators are
allowed. Also, both midterm and final exams are “no-question-asked” exams. Only
the non-programmable approved calculator (Sharp EL546 or Casio fx-991MS and
their later models) will be allowed.
3. There are lab tests that are conducted individually. There are two lab tests worth a
total of 15%. The first lab test is conducted after labs 1 to 3 are completed. It is worth
8%. The second lab test is conducted after labs 4 and 5 are completed. It is worth 7%.
Lab tests are scheduled for one hour per person and have small pre-lab,
implementation, and post-lab reports handed in. These test reports are written per
person, will be marked and posted online. There is “no question asked” policy for lab
tests. Students must use lab sessions as their practice run, as there is no
practice lab prior to tests

When possible, students are required to inform their instructors of any situation which arises during the semester which may have an adverse effect upon their academic performance, and must request any consideration and accommodation according to the relevant policies as far in advance as possible. Failure to do so may jeopardize any academic appeals.
Ryerson's Policy 60 (the Academic Integrity policy) applies to all students at the University. Forms of academic misconduct include plagiarism, cheating, supplying false information to the University, and other acts. The most common form of academic misconduct is plagiarism - a serious academic offence, with potentially severe penalties and other consequences. It is expected, therefore, that all examinations and work submitted for evaluation and course credit will be the product of each student's individual effort (or an authorized group of students). Submitting the same work for credit to more than one course, without instructor approval, can also be considered a form of plagiarism.
Suspicions of academic misconduct may be referred to the Academic Integrity Office (AIO). Students who are found to have committed academic misconduct will have a Disciplinary Notation (DN) placed on their academic record (not on their transcript) and will normally be assigned one or more of the following penalties:
The unauthorized use of intellectual property of others, including your professor, for distribution, sale, or profit is expressly prohibited, in accordance with Policy 60 (Sections 2.8 and 2.10). Intellectual property includes, but is not limited to:
