  • An experimental physicist
  • A High-school teacher (electronics is an important part of the New Zealand high-school physics curriculum)
  • An applied or industrial physicist


AC circuits: phasors and complex numbers, oscillations, resonance, Q, bandwidth and damping;

  • simple filters and networks; circuits;
  • operational amplifiers,
  • oscillators,
  • simple transistor circuits;
  • logic gates and digital applications.


  • One of PHSI 131, 132, 191, 110
  • MATH 160 or MATH 170
