• For a given system, one of multiple factors or variables, such as temperature or current, which help determine and quantify its behavior.
  • A specific value for a circuit component, such as the resistance of a resistor, or the capacitance of a capacitor, in a given circuit configuration. Also called circuit parameter.
  • A quantity which can be assigned an arbitrary value for one set of specific conditions, and another for others.
  • A value or expression that is passed between functions or programs for processing. This information is used to carry out operations. For instance, in the logarithmic function log (x), the argument is x. Also called argument.
