For a good voltage source, the output voltage is very stiff (doesn't change much) as the output current changes, so

[tex]Z = \frac{dv}{di} = \frac{0}{di} = 0[/tex]

But for a good current source, you get very little change in the output current over a wide range of output voltages, so

[tex]Z = \frac{dv}{di} = \frac{dv}{0} = infinity[/tex]

EDIT -- okay, I give up. How do you make the little infinity symbol in LaTex? "\inf" didn't work.

Berkman is correct.

Voltage source can provide infinite amount of current. And a current source can provide an infinite amount of voltage.

Z = V/I
