# EL 118 - Electrical Circuits I

Credit Hours: 2

This course will provide an overview of fundamental concepts necessary to work with electrical circuits including: electron theory; conductors; insulators; electromotive force; direct current; conventional current; voltage; resistance; factors affecting resistance; Ohm’s law; resistors in series; parallel and series/parallel; distribution of voltage and current; voltage and current divider rules; electrical power; and Kirchhoff’s laws.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

• understand theoretical concepts as they apply to electrical circuits;
• understand and correctly use electrical terminology, symbols and units;
• identify basic components and determine their function in various types of circuits;
• apply electrical theory and concepts to determine the circuital values of voltage, current and power; and
• employ a systematic and methodical approach to mathematically solving circuital problems.
