Electric potential volt (V) W/A

25

Table P1.27: change the voltage for element b from -18 to 18.

25

Fig. P1.28: add dark node marks in four places, above and below element c and element d.

34

Example 2.3: in part (b) of the Solution change the subscript on the second power equation from 0.2S to 0.2S.

55

Fig. P2.8: add dark node marks in two places, above the 80V source and below the 4A source.

94

P3.22: in the equation given in part (a), change the subscript on the first R from L to 1 (one).

163

185

P4.94: in the numerator of the first equation change V2 to v2 (make the symbol "vee" lower case).

Remove several smudge marks on this page.

231

Example 6.1: in part (b) of the Solution, the units in the first line should be A/s, not A/S.

233

Fig. 6.5: change the lower right equation to read v = 20te-10t V, t>0 (there should not be a "v" in the exponent; a "V" should appear to represent the unit of volts).

242

DE 6.2: change the units on the answer to part (c) from mJ to :J.

294

Fig. 7.18: extend the dashed box so that its upper right corner intersects the solid blue curve. Also, the blue line to the left of t=0 should be on top of the black axis, not above it.

(3t - 126.87o), not (3t + 126.87o).

895

Table 17.1: delete ejTot from the rightmost column of the entry labeled (complex exponential); the rightmost column should read 2B*(T - To).

996

Fig. C.6: delete the value 800S from the middle of the magnetically coupled coils.

1000

Fig. C.14(a): the subscript on the symbol L in the top inductor should be 1, not 2.
