Electricity 1: Devices, Circuits & Materials 9th Edition

Thomas Kubala

  • Published
  • Previous Editions 2006, 2001, 1996
  • 192 Pages

Overview

Designed to give readers the “building blocks” of electricity concepts, the sequence of topics and practical applications in this book will provide a solid foundation in electron theory and movement, direct-current series circuits, parallel circuits, series-parallel circuits, voltage line drops, rotating machinery fundamentals, and more! Electricity 1: Devices, Circuits and Materials, 9th Edition follows the same user-friendly approach that made previous editions so effective, while incorporating updates based on the 2008 National Electrical Code®. Featuring current industry terminology, photographs of commonly used electrical equipment, and sample problems with solutions, this is an ideal choice for a first course in basic electricity, house wiring, or commercial installations.

Thomas Kubala,

Thomas Kubala, Ed.D, received his A.A.S. in electrical technology from Broome Community College in Binghamton, New York, his B.S. in electrical engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology, and his M.S. in vocational technical education from the State University of New York at Oswego. He earned his doctoral degree in education from the University of Maryland, College Park. Prior to his retirement, Dr. Kubala was a full-time faculty member at two community colleges and a department head supervising a vocational-technical program. In addition to his extensive background in technology education, Dr. Kubala's career includes industrial experience with responsibilities in the fields of aerodynamics and electrical drafting, design, testing, and evaluation.
