User: What is a current source?

Weegy: it would go up to the source voltage (you have almost answered your own question A current source tries to give current "I" across the "load" So the source voltage will increase to V so that V/load = I However load = infinity(its open [ circuit) So in order to source current I - V = I x Infinity i.e V increases to its max = source voltage) If there aint no source voltage then there can be no constant current - Ohms law The whole point of a voltage source it to give a constant voltage independent of LOAD current there will still be current flowing in the voltage control circuit - that may increase when there is no LOAD current ]

User: current sources.

Weegy: A current source of information is up-to-date but may not be relevant to the topic. A relevant may or may not be current but pertains to the topic. A source can be current and not relevant, relevant and not current, or both relevant and current.
