Abstract / Full Text

The impedance of the RC circuit in which the active resistance depends on the applied dc voltage is considered. It is shown that in this case, the dependence of the impedance on the applied voltage is described by a hodograph of a new type, namely, a semicircumference pressed to the imaginary axis. The calculated and experimental hodographs that confirm the above assumptions are shown. It is demonstrated that the similarity and differences in the form of hodographs for cases R(U)C and RC (R = const) reflect the relationship between the functionally related values presented on the complex plane.
