    Hey guys.
    I want to ask about the dependent sources, in what shape can I find them?
    "I mean, do they look like the independent ones?"
    thanks

    That's a good question, Mr harm. The only practical cases I know of are when modeling circuits. Examples are amplifiers that can be considered a current source controlled by a voltage source or the same driven by a current source. Or, on the other hand it is a voltage source controlled by either current or voltage. It may be, I'm not really sure, that the dependent sources are a convenience of analysis rather than practical entities in and of themselves.

    There are a number of references on the Internet that you can google. Here is one link for example.

    From what I've seen, dependent sources are drawn as diamond-shaped, while independent sources are drawn as circles.
