Default Why is DC load line different from AC load line?

I know that Q-point is intersection of AC load line and DC load line.

I don't know why DC load line is different from AC load line.

I think that it means difference of resistance value.


Help me~

It is not the resistance, but the AC impedance which is frequency dependent.
We never have time to do it right,
But we always have time to do it over.

To echo what papabravo has stated, a device that exhibits an ac load-line in addition to a dc load-line possesses a load impedance that is not purely resistive.
