dc Voltage Source
Energy per electron is increased by a fixed amount as current passes from the “” to “+” end.
Current may flow either direction (source or sink)
dc Current Source
Current magnitude leaving source is fixed. Voltage across source is adjusted to allow this to happen.

In general V=IZ
For a resistor Z=R
So VR=IRR
