Linearity Property
Background image of page 4
Linear Property. . is a combination of: 1.Homogeneity (scaling) property if input (excitation/source) is increased by factor of k then → output (response) should also increase by factor of k 2.Additive property response to an input that is the sum of 2 or more inputs = sum of circuit response to each input individually
