What does input and output signals mean?

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

What does input and output signals mean in terms of circuitry. Is it the current, the voltage, resistance? Also people usually show graphs for AC as Sinusoidal waves or sometimes they show square-waves etc. What are these signals referring to, and what does it mean for signals to have wave like behavior when graphed. Does DC Battery have a wave? Does resistors have a wave? Do all electrical components have wave?

I am assuming here that wave and signals somehow relate... but I don't know how.

Achilles, as I have told you in other threads, you really need to study the basics of circuits in a systematic way. This scattershot approach of asking semi-random questions on an internet forum is not really going to get you far.

I don't care what you think. This is what the internet is for, I can ask anything I want. If you have nothing helpful to to write down then don't answer. No offence.

To be clear while you can ask the internet anything you want that really applies to google and other search engines but not in a moderated forum like PF. We want to help folks with their questions when we can but when they don’t even try to lookup the answers beforehand then we feel less likely to help them. Your post above will discourage others from answering because they will fear you saying the same thing to them.

For that reason, I am closing this thread for moderation... and hope you will reconsider your comment. We are all volunteers here and we really try to help those who need help but not always those who demand help.
