About this book


The Handbook of Electronics Formulas, Symbols and Definitions has been compiled for engineers, technicians, armed forces personnel, commercial operators, students, hobbyists, and all others who have some knowledge of electronic terms, symbols, and theory. The author's intention has been to provide a small, light reference book that may be easily carried in an attache case or kept in a desk drawer for easy access. A source for the majority of all electronic formulas, sym­bols, and definitions needed or desired for today's passive and active analog circuit technology. A format in which a desired formula may be located almost instantly without the use of an index, in the desired transposition, and in sufficiently parenthesized linear form for direct use with any scientific calculator. Sufficient information, alternate methods, approximations, schematic diagrams, and/or footnotes in such a manner so that technicians and hobbyists may understand and use the majority of the formulas, and that is acceptable and equally useful to engineers and others very knowledgeable in the field. 

All formulas in this Handbook use only the basic units of all terms. It is especially easy in this age of scientific calculators to convert to and from basic units. Formulas in all sections are listed alphabetically by symbol with the exception of applicable passive circuit symbols, where, for a given resultant, all series circuit formulas are listed first, followed by parallel and complex circuit formulas.
