Textbook Errata:

The textbook for PHYS345 is Electrical Engineering for All Engineers, 2nded., Roadstrum and Walaver (John Wiley, 1994; ISBN 0-471-51043-2). Unfortunately a number of typographical errors remain! Please alert me of any typos that you discover so that I may add them to the list...

Page 2, Fig. 2-2(c)
The labels on the arrows should be interchanged.
Page 16, footnote the work done per unit charge...
Page 20, Ex. 2.1
125,000 BTU is 132 MJ, rather than 131,850 KJ, keeping the appropriate number of digits.
Page 25, Fig. 2.10(c)
20 V should be replaced with 10 V.
Page 27, Fig. 2.11(b)
5 A should be replaced with 8 A.
