Introduction to DC and AC Circuits

This practical resource introduces students to DC and AC circuits and their applications through a wide range of practical activities. Students investigate basic circuit principles, and the operation of a variety of circuits using resistors and diodes. 

Practical tasks include the following:

  • The Basic DC Circuit
  • Resistance and Ohm’s Law
  • Power in a Resistor
  • Resistor Color Coding
  • Resistor Troubleshooting
  • Resistors Connected in Series and Parallel
  • Kirchhoff’s Laws
  • Resistor Network Troubleshooting
  • The Variable Resistor
  • Troubleshooting a Half-Wave Rectifier
  • The Zener Diode

Please note that this resource requires access to either anExperiment Platform (409-01) or an Experiment Card Motherboard (409-02).
