A simple electric circuit made up o a voltage soorce an a resistor. Here, , accordin tae Ohm's Law.

An electrical network is an interconnection o electrical components sic as reseestors, inductors, capacitors, voltage soorces, current soorces an switches. An electrical circuit is a network consistin o a closed luip, givin a return path for the current. Linear electrical networks, a special type consistin anly o soorces (voltage or current), linear lumped elements (resistors, capacitors, inductors), an linear distributit elements (transmission lines), hae the property that seegnals are linearly superimposable. Thay are thus mair easily analysed, uisin pouerfu frequency domain methods such as Laplace transforms, tae determine DC response, AC response, an transient response.
