### Do all common grounds end up to the chassis ground?

I'm new to electronics, and still wrapping my head around "common" and "ground." The schematic is: My question is if ALL the solid black grounds/commons end up at the one going to the cap/resister ...

### Common mode and differential mode

I can't understand how to apply common mode and differential mode concepts. 1) I know that if I have two signals v1 and v2, I can always write them as: v1 = vcm + vd/2 v2 = vcm - vd/2 Example: v1=...

### Does Differential Amplifier Emitter behave as ground in AC-analysis?

I am trying to solve various differential-amplifier homework problems for which I have the solution to study. For the simplicity of most problems we are able to neglect base-currents. Moreover, it ...
