|Calendar Description||This one-semester lecture/lab course covers general electric circuit parameters and laws. Topics include: basic electric circuits, voltage and current sources, resistance, analysis of DC circuits, power considerations. Concepts of capacitance, inductance, and their transient behaviour. Introduction of AC sources, phasors, reactance and impedance, AC analysis of RC, RL, and RCL circuits, the effect of resonance, real and complex power in reactive loads.|
|Prerequisites||MTH140 and MTH141|
|Learning Objectives (Indicators)|
At the end of this course, the successful student will be able to:
NOTE:Numbers in parentheses refer to the graduate attributes required by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB).
3.0 hours of lecture per week for 13 weeks
Note: In order for a student to pass a course, a minimum overall course mark of 50% must be obtained. In addition, for courses that have both "Theory and Laboratory" components, the student must pass the Laboratory and Theory portions separately by achieving a minimum of 50% in the combined Laboratory components and 50% in the combined Theory components. Please refer to the "Course Evaluation" section above for details on the Theory and Laboratory components (if applicable).
|Examinations||1. The midterm is scheduled on Monday, March 6th, 2023 during regular lecture hours.|
2. The official final exam will be announced by the timetabling department. The final exam includes materials discussed from the beginning to the end.
Refer to the course webpage on D2L for updated information on the Midterm and Final Exam schedules and coverage.
|Other Evaluation Information||1. Students are required to earn passing marks in both theory and lab components separately. In the absence of students' lab portions with valid reasons and proper documents submitted and verified by students' department, the make up lab will be arranged or grades will be shifted to final exam. As labs are hands-on, earning lab grades during the term is a lot simpler than compensating lab grades in final exam. Lab reports should be handed in the week after the labs.(3x5%)|
2. There are lab tests that are conducted individually(10%). Lab tests are scheduled for one hour per person and have small pre-lab, implementation, and post- lab reports handed in. These test reports are written per person, will be marked and posted online. There is no question-asked policy for lab tests. Students must use actual lab sessions as their practice run, as there is no practice lab prior to the tests
3. Only university-approved calculators are allowed. Also, both midterm and final exams are no-question-asked exams. Only the non-programmable approved calculator (Sharp EL546 or Casio fx-991MS and their later models) will be allowed.

Students are reminded that they are required to adhere to all relevant university policies found in their online course shell in D2L and/or on the Senate website
You can submit an Academic Consideration Request when an extenuating circumstance has occurred that has significantly impacted your ability to fulfill an academic requirement. You may always visit the Senate website and select the blue radio button on the top right hand side entitled: Academic Consideration Request (ACR) to submit this request.
For Extenuating Circumstances, Policy 167: Academic Consideration allows for a once per semester ACR request without supporting documentation if the absence is less than 3 days in duration and is not for a final exam/final assessment. Absences more than 3 days in duration and those that involve a final exam/final assessment, require documentation. Students must notify their instructor once a request for academic consideration is submitted. See Senate Policy 167: Academic Consideration.
Academic Accommodation Support (AAS) is the university's disability services office. AAS works directly with incoming and returning students looking for help with their academic accommodations. AAS works with any student who requires academic accommodation regardless of program or course load.
Academic Accommodations (for students with disabilities) and Academic Consideration (for students faced with extenuating circumstances that can include short-term health issues) are governed by two different university policies. Learn more about Academic Accommodations versus Academic Consideration and how to access each.
At Toronto Metropolitan University, we recognize that things can come up throughout the term that may interfere with a student’s ability to succeed in their coursework. These circumstances are outside of one’s control and can have a serious impact on physical and mental well-being. Seeking help can be a challenge, especially in those times of crisis.
If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, please call 911 and go to the nearest hospital emergency room. You can also access these outside resources at anytime:
If non-crisis support is needed, you can access these campus resources:
We encourage all Toronto Metropolitan University community members to access available resources to ensure support is reachable. You can find more resources available through the Toronto Metropolitan University Mental Health and Wellbeing website.
