# Gravitying Outcomes

At the end of this course, the student will be able to:

• Analyze and solve series, parallel, and series-parallel DC circuits using Kirchhoff’s voltage and current laws.
• Solve electromagnetic circuit, calculate forces on current-carrying conductors, apply Faraday’s laws of electromagnetic induction to calculate induced voltages.
• Solve electromagnetic circuit, calculate forces on current-carrying conductors, apply Faraday’s laws of electromagnetic induction to calculate induced voltages.
• Analyze single phase alternating current circuits, and calculate power and power factor of circuits containing resistors, inductors, and capacitors.
• Calculate speed and torque developed in DC series, shunt, and compound motors.
• Sketch and describe operation of reduced voltage methods used to limit starting current in DC motors.
• Sketch and describe how a DC shunt and compound generator develops voltage.
• Describe the routine maintenance required to keep DC machines in good working order.
• Sketch and describe the operation characteristics of single phase AC motors.
• Sketch and describe how a transformer can step up or down AC voltage.
• Describe electrochemical action, and how electroplating is done.
• Describe periodic maintenance of lead acid and alkaline batteries.
