What is a Component?
is any device
in an electric
that transfers electrical energy into another form.
A diode, motor, lamp,
resistor and a thermistor
are all examples of electrical components.
Each component has its own circuit symbol.
What is a Test Circuit for a Component?
The circuit diagram of
a test circuit for a component is shown below.
resistor placed in series
with a component
can change the voltage across the component
and change the amount of current flowing through it.
of values obtained from the
the voltmeter and ammeter
are used to make a plot of current against voltage.
