# Circuit Diagram And Its Electrical Component Types

## Circuit Diagram

A circuit diagram is an image and essentially shows the interconnection of electrical components in the form of a standardized symbolic representation. A circuit diagram shows actual electrical component connections in image format. And a circuit diagram is known as a graphical representation of a circuit.

## Circuit

A circuit is basically a group of electrical components connected together by wires or soldering. Basically the circuit is designed using soldering is called PCB design. And an electrical circuit is a closed loop of electrical components and uses a battery or power supply to flow electricity in the circuit.
Electrical circuit is divided into two types, first is series circuit and second is parallel circuit.

### 1. Series Circuit

Basically a series circuit means that all components carry the same amount of current. And series circuits arrange all components in a line basically in series form. And the disadvantages of a series circuit are that one electrical component breaks down when all the components fail and the entire circuit burns out.

### 2. Parallel Circuit

Basically, a parallel circuit means that the current in all components is the sum of the current from the source. Arrange all components in parallel in this circuit. In a parallel circuit an electrical component breaks when other electrical components function properly Basically all components have their own independent circuit

## Electronic Components

Basically the electronic component is divided into three types, the first is the active electronic component, the second is the passive electronic component and the third is the electromechanical component.

### 1. Active Electronic Components

Basically active electronic components are active when they are active. Active electronic components inject power into an electrical circuit. An active component is a part of an electrical circuit and relies on an external power supply to modify or control an electrical signal or power supply. Generally active electrical components control the current.

### 2. Passive Electronic Components

Basically passive electronic components are components that do not require an external power supply to operate. Passive components do not generate electrical energy but passive components store or dissipate electrical energy.

### 3. Electromechanical Components

Basically an electromechanical component is a component that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. The most common example of an electromechanical component is a rotating motor. Basically electromechanical components generate some magnetic field and move the material using the magnetic field.
