Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi fellow physicist!

I have some trouble with finding a valid argument, for why the superposition theorem should be fulfilled for electrical circuits - there only containing resistors, capacitors and inductors - where the sources of the emf. are connected in series.

Thanks in advance.

Have you found any valid arguments why superposition shouldn't be valid for such circuits?

It all hinges on the elements (incl. the sources) being linear over the whole range.
