what are active and Passive Components?..

Answer / usman saleh

ACTIVE components increase the power of a signal and must be supplied with the signal and a source of power.
Examples are bipolar transistors, field effect transistors etc.

The signal is fed into one connection of the active device and the amplified version taken from another connection.
In a transistor, the signal can be applied to the base connection and the amplified version taken from the collector.

The source of power is usually a dc voltage from a battery or power supply.



PASSIVE components do not increase the power of a signal.
They often cause power to be lost.
Some can increase the voltage at the expense of current, so overall there is a loss of power.
Resistors, capacitors, inductors and diodes are examples of passive components.

Integrated circuits contain both active and passive components.
Since they usually increase the power of a signal and require a source of dc power they are treated as active devices.

what are active and Passive Components?..

Answer / ihsanullah

Instruments are divided into active or passive ones
according to whether the instrument output is entirely
produced by the quantity being measured or whether the
quantity being measured simply modulates the magnitude of
some external power source.

what are active and Passive Components?..

Answer / sarbajit sahoo

the source which can amplify a signal is called a active
source.ex. transistor





the source which cant amplify an energy(signal) is called a
passive source. ex.resister,capacitor,inducter.
these elements only store the energy in terms of voltage or
current.

what are active and Passive Components?..

Answer / dharmendra kumar kasaudhan

active component are those which is require to operateal the electical energy as-diode,transistor ect.





Passive component are those wich store energy as-resister inductor capacitor etc.

what are active and Passive Components?..

Answer / madanreddy

Any electronic circuit made up of Power supply(Active) and
Small components such as Resistor,Capacitor,Inductor(Passive)

Active components: Major component of any electronic circuit
to generate AC/DC power. and also to generate amplified
frequency invariant output signal(Loud Speaker).

Passive Components:These are the components to control the
input signal. Resistor(Restricts the flow of current),
Capacitor(Which acts as battery to store energy),
Inductor(Which also acts as a energy storage element)
