The circuit in Fig 21 18a is called a low pass filter
The circuit in Fig. 21.18a is called a low-pass filter because a large current and voltage (and thus a lot of power) are delivered to the load resistor (RL) only by a low-frequency source. The circuit in Fig. 21.18b is called a high-pass filter because a large current and voltage (and thus a lot of power) are delivered to the load only by a high-frequency source. Describe conceptually why the circuits have these characteristics.
