Electronic Curves Quiz
February 1963 Popular Electronics

February 1963 Popular Electronics

February 1963 Popular Electronics Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]People old and young enjoy waxing nostalgic about and learning some of the history of early electronics. Popular Electronics was published from October 1954 through April 1985. All copyrights (if any) are hereby acknowledged.

This Electronics Curves Quiz will probably prove to be a little more of a challenge than some of the ones previously appearing in Popular Electronics magazine. Being a rocket scientist won't help you much here, but being a seasoned electronics technician, hobbyist, or engineer will sure come in handy. Be careful to note the axis unit labels - I got tripped up by that from being lazy and missed one.

Electronic Curves Quiz

By Robert P. Balin

The operation of electronic devices and circuits is often represented by characteristic curves. See if you can match the electronic devices and circuits at left (1 - 10) with their corresponding curves (A - J).
