I am trying to get a handle on some electrical circuit diagrams I've been encountering as I try to get back into electronics and building electronic gadgets. I've encountered a number of terms for voltage, and I am not sure what they all mean, so I was hoping someone could explain them to me. Here they are, along with what I believe they mean (if I think I know):
- Vpp (Voltage peak power?)
- V0 or 0V (Negative or common "terminal", source of lowest potential?)
There are also the common Vin and Vout designations, which are pretty self explanatory. I've also seen positive and negative voltage indicators in AC circuits, but that is also self explanatory.
Are some of these simply context specific, with meanings only valid within a given circuit? Are they all commonly used?
