A terminal or electrode having more electrons than normal. Electrons flow
out of the negative terminal of a voltage source .
Feedback in which the feedback signal is out of phase with the input signal.
Also called DEGENERATIVE FEEDBACK .
The form of logic in which the more positive voltage level represents a logic 0,
FALSE, or LOW and the more negative voltage represents a logic 1, TRUE, or HIGH .
NEGATIVE TEMPERATURE COEFFICIENT
A characteristic of a semiconductor material, such as silver sulfide, in which resistance to electrical current flow decreases as temperature increases  
A combination of electrical components. In a parallel circuit it is composed of two or more branches .
(1) In a normal condition, hence neither positive nor negative. A neutral object has a normal number of electrons (the same number as protons) . (2) The teletypewriter operation where current flow represents a mark and no flow represents a space .
The process of counteracting or "neutralizing" the effects of interelectrode
NEWTON'S SECOND LAW OF MOTION
If an unbalanced outside force acts on a body, the resulting acceleration is directly proportional to the magnitude of the force, is in the direction of the force, and is inversely proportional to the mass of the body .
The condition that exists when an electrical source or secondary of a
transformer is operated without an electrical load .
