I am writing intro physics exams in LaTeX, using the circuitikz package to make circuits. A lot of the circuits use simple light bulbs, which we represent as a circle with a curly-cue inside.
Drawing this isn't really hard. But I'm planning on drawing several dozen light bulbs like this, and was hoping to make some kind of macro, hopefully one I can implement in the form
(0,0) to[bulb, l=A] (2,0)
so that it integrates easily with the other circuitikz commands.
Is there a simple way to do this?
P.S. The "lamp" element predefined in circuitikz is probably great for real world circuit diagrams used by professional electricians; less so for sophomore pre-med majors taking an intro physics class.
