Study Notes

Electrical Elements

  • Resistors convert energy into heat or store it in an electric or magnetic field.

Types of Conductors

  • Conduction in both directions with the same magnitude is a characteristic of linear elements.

Circuit Classification

  • A linear circuit is roughly defined as one that is linear.

Active Elements

  • Examples of active elements in an electrical network include batteries, transistors, and operational amplifiers.

Unidirectional Conduction

  • Diodes allow conduction of current in only one direction.

Electrical Elements and Definitions

  • Resistors: convert energy into heat or store it in an electric or magnetic field
  • Linear Elements: conduct current in both directions with the same magnitude
  • Active Elements: supply energy to a circuit, examples include batteries, transistors, and operational amplifiers
  • Diodes: allow conduction of current in only one direction

Electrical Elements and Examples
