Unformatted text preview: L,max = 39.669 Watts – P Gen = 72.72 Watts R = 200 Ohms – R L,max = 200 Ohms – P L,max = 20 Watts – P Gen = 40 Watts Data Analysis: When the load resistance was at 100 Ohms, the estimated maximum was 120 Ohms. This value was higher than 100 because there was extra resistance in the power supply and the wires. When this value was used to calculate the maximum power, it ended up being about twice the value of the 200 Ohm load resistance. Also, for both resistance values, P L,max turned out to be about half the power generated. Conclusion: This experiment was intended to prove the theory that the load resistance should surpass the internal resistance of the power supply. After this experiment was performed and the data was analyzed it was found that this was proven experimentally....
