One of the most important criteria for comparing equivalent circuit configurations and for establishing their practical utility in meeting desired requirements is sensitivity. In practice, real circuit components will deviate from their nominal design values due to manufacturing tolerances, environmental changes such as in temperature and humidity, and chemical changes which occur as the circuit ages. The cause-and-effect relationship between the circuit element variations and the resulting changes in the response or some other network function is referred to as sensitivity.
