Why a transistor is a non linear devices?

A: THE WORD IS LINEAR. yes it is not a very linear device as a function of current

How to tell the difference of a linear and non linear function without it on a graph?

A linear function, of a variable x, is of the form ax+b where a and b are constants. A non-linear function will have x appearing in some other form: raised to a power other than 1, or in a trigonometric, or exponential or other form.

What is a linear resistor?

which obey ohms law ANSWER: Not all potentiometers are linear some are made to follow a logarithm function some follows an exponential function. A linear potentiometer will have a linear curve. Materials that obey Ohm's Law are called 'linear' or 'ohmic'; those that don't are called 'non-ohmic' or 'non-linear'.

Is transistor linear or non linear?

A transistor can function in both linear and non-linear modes. In the linear mode, it can amplify small signals with a linear relationship between input and output. In the non-linear mode, the transistor operates as a switch, turning on or off based on the input signal.

What is radial solution in mathematics?

Radial solutions are unique linear and non-linear formula equations used in math to explain the Laplacian equation. To calculate problems, scientist must determine the function based on the variable provided in the equation.
