Problems in Mathematics for Electricians
Solve Practical Math
Problems Commonly Faced By Electricians On The Job
By Stephen Herman
 Eighth Edition
Gain the math skills you need to succeed in
the electrical trade with this new edition of Practical
Problems in Mathematics for Electricians. Using the same
straightforward writing style and simple, stepbystep explanations
that made previous editions so readerfriendly, the eighth edition
includes updated illustrations and information for a better learning
experience than ever before!
The book begins with basic arithmetic and
then, once these basic topics have been mastered, progresses to
algebra and then trigonometry. Practical electrical math problems
with realworld scenarios from the electrical field are used
throughout, allowing readers to apply key mathematical concepts at
the same time as they are developing an awareness of basic
electrical terms and practices. This is the perfect resource for
anyone entering the electrical industry, or simply looking to brush
up on the necessary math.
Word problems designed to encourage the use of
logical deduction are just one of the hallmarks of this tried and
true guidebook that provides the mathematical background students
need to succeed in the electrical field.
Explanations at the beginning of each unit
foster a better understanding of the concepts being presented; while
problems related to electricity help develop an appreciation for
electrical terms and practices.
Features:
 A new unit on number systems has been added
that examines the decimal, binary, octal, and hexadecimal number
systems.
 Many new drawings and word problems feature
multiple steps to exercise the ability of readers to reach logical
conclusions.
 Opportunities to practice math principles
in problems that are specifically designed for the electrical
field are integrated throughout.
 Expansive coverage explores the
mathematical units used in today's scientific and engineering
applications.
 Answers to odd numbered problems are given,
and an allinclusive appendix features basic mathematical
operations, conversions, symbols, and terminology.
