Another method. Using an battery with a piece of electric wire,seperately touch the connection terminals of buzzer.If the buzzer makes sound like "Chi" in every touch,it is passive buzzer. If it just makes sound for one time or soundless, it is active buzzer.
Controllable sound is one feature of passive buzzer.It can make sound in different frequences.However,it must be drived by square wave and then will make sound.
