    What is the mean of bilateral and non-bilateral components in the electrical circuit?

    Well, I'd guess that in a bilateral component it doesn't matter which way the current passes through it (like a resistor), and a non-bilateral component has a preferred direction for the current to pass through it.

    I'm sure someone will be along soon to confirm (or, more probably, correct) what I've said, since this isn't really my field of expertise!!
