This Electrical Circuit Diagram is a graphical representation of an electrical circuit that uses either basic images of parts or industry-standard symbols. The use of characters is determined by the audience viewing the Electrical Circuit Diagram. A schematic-style circuit diagram is used to provide an electrician with a visual representation of an electrical circuit. The pictorial circuit diagram would be used for a more general, non-technical audience. In a circuit diagram, hundreds of different symbols can be used. These simple images of objects such as a battery or a resistor for a pictorial style circuit diagram and industry-standard symbols for things such as capacitors or inductors are examples of these.
