A wire is a single slender rod or filament of drawn metal. This definition restricts the term to what would ordinarily be understood as “solid wire.” The word “slender” is used because the length of a wire is usually large when compared to its diameter. If a wire is covered with insulation, it is an insulated wire. Although the term “wire” properly refers to the metal, it also includes the insulation.
A block diagram is used primarily to present a general description of a system and its functions. This type of diagram is generally used in conjunction with text material. A block diagram shows the major
components of a system and the interconnections of these components. All components are shown in block form, and each block is labeled for identification purposes
