Question No. 22: What are the applications of filter?
Answer: The Filter is used in voice frequency telegraphy, multi channel communication, TV broadcasting and telephony.

Question No. 23: What is inductance?
Answer: It is the property of a material by virtue of which it opposes any change of magnitude and direction of current passing through the conductor.

Question No. 24: What are the properties of a resistor?
Answer: The properties are high resistivity, resistance to oxidation, corrosion and moisture.

Answer: This theorem states that any linear network with output terminal AB can be replaced by a single voltage source V in series with a single impedance.

Question No. 26: Define active and passive network?
Active network: The network which has no current or voltage source is called passive network.
Passive network: The network which either has current or voltage source is called active network.

Question No. 27: List the characteristics of filter?
Answer: An ideal filter would transmit signals under the pass-band frequencies without attenuation and completely suppress the signal with attenuation band of frequencies with a sharp cut-off profile.

Question No. 28: Define cut-off frequency?
Answer: The frequency that separates the pass and attenuation band is known as cut-off frequency.
