14.2 The Derivative
• To understand the response of the basic R, L and C elements to a sinusoidal signal, you need to examine the concept of the derivative. • The derivative dx/dt is defined as the rate of change of x with respect to time. • If x fails to change at a particular instant, dx = 0, and the derivative is zero. • The derivative dx/dt is actually the slope of the graph at any instant of time.

2

14.2 The Derivative
• The derivative dx/dt is zero only at the positive and negative peaks (ωt = π/2 and 3π/2) since x fails to change at these instants of time. • For the sinusoidal waveform, the greatest change in x will occur at the instants ωt = 0, π, and 2π. The derivative is therefore a maximum at these points.

Resistor
• For power-line frequencies and frequencies up to a few hundred kilohertz, resistance is, for all practical purposes, unaffected by the frequency of the applied sinusoidal voltage or current. • For this frequency region, the resistor R can be treated as a constant.

• The inductive voltage is directly related to the frequency f (or more specifically, the angular velocity of the sinusoidal ac current through the coil) and the inductance of the coil L. • The voltage across an inductor is directly related to the rate of change of current through the coil.
