Introduction to Electrical (Linear) Energy Storage Elements (the capacitor & the inductor) (CL01)

The lesson likewise reviews the mechanical analogs to the inductor as well as the capacitor, that is the springtime and also the mass.

A bulk of time is invested discussing the essential circuital distinctions in between the resistor as well as its power storage space brother or sisters – the inductor and also the capacitor. This is done using taking into consideration each component’s action to a used bipolar pulse. It is revealed that the power provided to the resistor is unipolar, bring about an ordinary power dissipation, while the power supplied to the inductor and also capacitor is bipolar, as well as causes an ordinary power dissipation of absolutely no.

This lesson presents the capacitor and also inductor from a voltage/current (V/I) incurable particular sight factor, not a physics point of view.
