A voltage source is loaded when current is drawn from it. Usually we have voltage sources in circuits and not current sources. A resistive load draws current from a voltage source that is a function of its resistance as per the formula V=I*R.
Now while it is completely clear what it means to load a circuit i.e draw current, and it is also clear what resistive loading means, it is not clear what capacitive and inductive load means. I mean if everything is merely loading i.e draw current, then why make the distinction?
Is my definition of "loading", correct?
