Q.1.
Sol.

Figure 1 Using Figure 1: Calculate the voltage drop and current for each resistor. Step #1: Reduce the circuit to one equivalent resistance value.

R1 and R2 are connected directly in parallel and can be replaced with an equivalent resistor, RX.

The resulting circuit is shown in Figure A.

Figure A RX and R4 are in series (sum these two values), therefore, they can be combined to produce value RY. RY = RX + R4 = 10 + 6 = 16

Figure B shows the resulting circuit.

Figure B RY and R3 are now directly in parallel and can be replaced with an equivalent resistor, RZ.

The resulting circuit now looks like the one in Figure C:

Figure C The total equivalent resistance is therefore the sum of RZ and R5. RT = RZ + R5 = 12 + 3 = 15

Step #2: Calculate total current in the circuit using Ohm’s Law.

Step #3: Determine the voltage drop of each resistor. Figure D shows the current flow in the circuit (indicated by the arrows).

Figure D The current leaving the supply (+) is the total current entering the circuit, and the current leaving R5 is also the total current. Therefore, the current through resistor R5 is the only known current (which is the same as the total current, 8 amps). Using Ohm's Law, you can calculate the voltage drop across R5. VR5 = IR5 × R5 = 8 A × 3 = 24 V

In the above Figure , the resultant resistor RZ would have a voltage drop. If this voltage drop were added to the voltage drop of R5, the result would be equal to the applied voltage (as per Kirchhoff’s Voltage Law). Therefore: E = VRZ + VR5 By transposing the formula, we can find the value of VRZ. E = VRZ + VR5 OR VRZ = E – VR5 VRZ = 120 – 24 = 96 V

Or we can find it out by voltage division formula V12= (12x 120)/ 12 +3 = 96V

Figure E shows the comparison of RZ to a section of the series-parallel circuit that we simplified to find RZ. By studying Figure E, we can see that the voltage across RZ is 96 volts. Also, we can see that R3 is directly in parallel with RZ; therefore, R3 would have the same voltage across it as RZ (96 V). To find the voltage drop across each resistor, we must know the resistance and the current through each resistor. We know the voltage across R3 and the resistance of R3; therefore, we can calculate the current through R3.

Figure E

Figure F

From Figure (F) by using voltage division formula V4 = (6 x 96)/ 10 +6 = 36V IR4= VR4/ R4 = 6A We have now found the voltage drop across R3, R4, and R5; also, the sum of these three voltages equals the supply voltage (E). Figure G shows the circuit with the known voltages and their location.

Figure G If we now analyze the circuit, we can make certain observations: 1. The voltage of R1 is equal to the voltage of R2. 2. The voltage of R1 added to the voltage of R4 is equal to the voltage of R3. 3. If voltage of R4 is subtracted from the voltage of R3 we get the voltage of R1 (and the voltage of R2 since they are equal in value). Therefore, we can now calculate the voltage of R1 and R2: VR1 = VR2 = VR3 – VR4 VR1 = VR2 = 96 V – 36 V VR1 = VR2 = 60 V

All of the voltage drops across each resistor have now been determined. The current through each resistor has been found except for IR1 and IR2. Step #4: Find IR1 and IR2.

Q.2.
(a) Consider the circuit shown below. Suppose that V=30V, R1=10KΩ , and VO =10V. Find R2 and also the power dissipated in R2. (b) Consider the circuit shown below. Suppose that V=12V, R2=140 Ω , and VO =8.5V.Find R1 and also the power dissipated in R1.

Sol. (a)
Vo = ( R2)x (V)/(R1 + R2) 10 = 30 x R2 / 10 + R2 3R2= 10 + R2 R2 = 5 kΩ / R2 = 100/5 = 0.02W=20mW

Po = Vo2

(b)

Vo = ( R2)x (V)/(R1 + R2) 8.5 = 140 x 12 / 140 + R1 1680 = 1190 + 8.5R1 R1 = 57.6 Ω / R1 = (3.5)2/57.6 = 0.212W

P1 = Vo2

P2 = Vo2 / R1 = (8.5)2/140 = 0.52W
