The ideal and real cur— rent sources are symbolized in Figure 1. 24B. In later chapters, time-varying voltage and current sources will be encountered As long as their outputs are unaffected by the circuit load, they are ideal The mercury battery closely approximates an ideal voltage source when used correctly, in that the battery voltage remains constant. A simple constant current source can be constructed with a battery and a very large resistance in series with it. Within limits, the current is constant as long as the load resistance does not approach that of the constant current resistance. 1-14 QUESTIONS AND PROBLEMS 1.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
