Last time we looked at open and closed switches. Here, we are going to investigate the iv-characteristics for ideal voltage and current sources.

We’ll see an ideal voltage source has zero resistance and an ideal current source has infinite resistance. By examining the slope of the iv-curve which will help you determine what resistor value should be for an ideal source.
