    light bulb was to make it inexpensive and safe. Following his success with the light bulb, he built his first electrical station in New York in 1882. Four months later, he powered 5,000 lamps, printing presses and fans; by 1890, he powered 20,000. Amazingly, he accidentally discovered the materials to make cement while developing his milling operations (Encyclopedia.com, “Electrical Engineering”). Following this discovery, he made an automatic cement maker in 1889, which was used to construct landmarks

    ¬¬¬¬¬¬Abstract Electrical circuits are described with mathematical expressions. Usually, it is possible to calculate the currents and voltages in a circuit by solving a set of equations, the calculations are required to design a safe circuit.and this is one reason why advanced mathematics is so important in the field of electrical engineering. The circuit equations can be determined using Ohm’s Law, which gives the relationship between voltage and current in a resistor (V=IR), and Kirchhoff’s Current
