**Part I****:****Introduction & Terminology. "AC Circuit" Means That:**- Current & Voltage are Functions of Time. Sine or Cosine Functions are assumed.
- In the US, the oscillation frequency is ususally f = 60 Hz. Power in AC Circuits.
- Peak & mean square values of voltage, current & power. Circuit Analysis.
- AC Circuits with resistors. The math description of all of this is identical to that for a
- simple harmonic oscillator in Classical Mechanics.
