Kevin Klein Homework 2 Problem 1 Solution The first step of this problem is to find the current through node A and the voltage at node B in the original circuit: mA I 50 . 0 7500 1500 3000 6 ! " " ! V R I V 75 . 3 7500 * 10 * 5 . 0 * 3 ! ! ! # Next, find the same values using the good instruments: mA I 5012 . 0 0 . 7472 1 . 0 1500 3000 6 ! " " " ! The 0.1 ! resistance appearing in the denominator of the current equation is the resistance of the good ammeter. The 7.4720 k ! resistance is the parallel combination of the 2 M ! voltmeter resistance and the 7.5 k ! resistor: \$ ! " ! 0 . 7472 7500 10 * 2 7500 * 10 * 2 6 6 eq R

Here, the voltmeter resistance is calculated as follows: \$ !

Homework 2 Problem 2 Solution The first step is to find the resistance of the 40, 60, and 100 W lamps: R 2 24 40 ! R 2 24 60 ! R 2 24 100 ! Solving these equations gives the following resistances: " ! 4 . 14 40 R " ! 6 . 9 60 R " ! 76 . 5 100 R In circuit 2, the voltage drop across each resistor will be 20 V because they are all in parallel. Because the resistance of each lamp is known, the currents can be calculated: A I 389 . 1 4 . 14 20 40 ! ! A I 083 . 2 6 . 9 20 60 ! ! A I 472 . 3 76 . 5 20 100 ! ! The power dissipated in each lamp can now be calculated: W R I P 78 . 27 40 2 40 40 ! ! W R I P 65 . 41 60 2 60 60 ! ! W R I P 44 . 69 100 2 100 100 ! ! The power supplied by the source must equal the total power dissipated in the three lamps: # \$ # \$ W V I I I P S source 88 . 138 20 * 472 . 3 083 . 2 389 . 1 * 100 60 40 ! % % ! % % ! Here, the current through the source is just the sum of the currents through the lamps.
