Course Description
PHY 206 Electronic Circuit Theorem and Analysis (3 credit units)
PrerequisitePHY 102
Fundamental Direct Current Concept: Review of DC concept and current properties of a conductor. Topic to include direct current circuit, E.M.Fs, definition of conductors, current properties of conductor (charge, cross sectional area, length of conductor, drift velocity of charges), voltage and current. Definition of Resistors and resistances, Ohm’s law, arrangement of resistors in parallel and series, resistivity, recasting of Ohm’s law in terms of electric field, conductivity and resistivity. Electric, Energy and Power.
Circuit Laws: definition of short and open circuits, nodes, branches, mash Linearity properties and loop. Kirchoff”s laws; voltage and current laws (Kvl and Kcl) and applications. Circuit Theorems: Thevenin’s theorem and maximum power transfer, Norton’s circuit theorem, superposition theorem and delta and star connection and conversion.
Capacitors and Inductors: definition, parallel, series and parallelseries arrangements.
First Order Circuits definition of time constants, RC and RL circuits, step response to RC and RL circuits: charging and discharging of capacitors and inductors, finding the initial and values of RC and RL circuits. Second order circuits: LC and RCL circuit, step response to LC and RCL circuits, frequency response.
AC circuits: average value and rms value. Sinusoidal and phasors, inductive and capacitive reactances, RC, RL, RCL series circuits, RCL parallel circuit, ac power analysis, frequency response and bandwidth.
Resources:
 1. Textbooks
Electromagnetism and Electronics, first edition, Author Menkiti and O. Abumere, Electrical and Electronics Principles, third edition, Author John Bird. Electrical Circuit, foundation series edition, Author P. Syvester.
Homework
Look through the text and try solving some of the exercises. Summit all your work on or before the stipulated time.
Assignments and Examination
There will be two assignments and one virtual examination at the end of the semester. The final exam will be cumulative. Assignments would be submitted electronically and within the stipulated time. Extension will not be accepted except on some special consideration duly given by Isaac Chukwutem Abiodun
Grading Policy
The following grading scale will be used:
 5% of your score shall be based on your virtual classroom attendance
 10% shall be based on homework
 15% shall be based on assignment and participation
 70% shall be based on examination
The final grade would be based on your total grade percentage.
Course Policies
Participation
I expect you to participate in all class activities as listed on the course calendar. Participation includes, but is not limited to, the following:
 Completing all class assignments on time
 Actively engaging in class discussions
 Asking thoughtful questions during zoom class
 Proactively seeking guidance from the instructor when needed
Attendance Policy
Attendance is expected in all virtual classes. Valid excuses for absence will be accepted before class. In extenuating circumstances, valid excuses with proof will be accepted after class. Late submissions of homework will be granted for no penalty if a valid excuse is communicated to the instructor before the due date. After the due date, late submission will be granted for a 50% deduction to the score up to 2 days. After this no late submission will be granted.
Schedule and Weekly Learning Goals
The schedule is tentative and subject to change. The learning goals below should be viewed as the key concepts you should grasp after each week, and also as a study guide before each exam, and at the end of the semester. Each exam will test on the material that was taught up until the week of the exam. The applications in the second half of the semester tend to build on the concepts in the ﬁrst half of the semester though, so it is still important to at least review those concepts throughout the semester.
