Problem #06:
Consider the linear, bilateral, and symmetric two-port network abstracted in Figure (P6a).
Observe that the load
(R
l
)
terminating the output port of the network is purely resistive, as is the
intrinsic impedance
(R
s
)
associated with the applied signal source.

If a general, linear two-port network is modeled by its open circuit impedance parameters,

Since the terminating load resistance,
R

, in the subject linear network subjugates the output port
current,

V

, to the Ohm’s constraint,

Note then that
z
21
is a measure of the degree to which input port current,
I

is transferred to the out-
put port as a current,
I

, since the input -to- output (I/O) current ratio
I

the transimpedance parameter,

If we now insert (P6-4) into (P6-1), we arrive at a driving point
