Linear Circuit Elements Resistors are linear circuit elements: V = IR is clearly a straight line. Ideal capacitors and inductors are linear. Independent sources are linear. Dependent sources are linear provided that the output voltage or current is proportional to the first power of a specified voltage or current (or a sum of these).
