Unformatted text preview: pg1of8 EK307 — Electric Circuit Theory — Fall 2007 Final Exam
0 This exam consists of three parts:
1) Basic circuit theory questions; 2) RLC circuit problems, and 3) Lab questions.
0 You have two hours to complete this exam
0 Up to three sheets of notes plus calculator permitted. No other books or materials allowed.
You may use your lab notebook for Part 3.
0 Put all answers in the boxes or on the graph axis provided. Credit will only be given for
answers entered in the proper place. Part I — Ten Short answer questions _
Write the letter of the answer in the box provided. 1. Two 1.5V D—cell batteries are used to power a small light bulb. The brightest light will be obtained by connecting the elements in which way?
Connect the cells in series with the bulb. Connect the cells in anti—series with the bulb. Connect the cells in parallel with the bulb:
Connect the cells in antiparallel with the bulb.
Series or parallel makes no difference to bulb brightness as long as both cells are used. 2. An ohmmeter is connected to the circuit shown below at terminals A and B. The ohmmeter reads 259

Capacitance Voltage
Current 4. How is an ammeter usually connected to a circuit under test?
In series with the circuit.
In parallel with the circuit.
In series and in parallel with the circuit.
In phase with the circuit.
With a coaxial clip—lead test cable. 5. A 480052 resistor is connected to a voltage source of value 120 cos cot V, where 0) = 2n x 60 Hz. What is the power dissipated in the resistor?

...been discharged to a voltage of about 3.7 V
...been discharged to a voltage of about 6.3 V
...been discharged to 10 mV
...been discharged essentially to zero
...retained most of its lOV charge. The resistor is too small to
signiﬁcantly discharge the capacitor in a few milliseconds. pg 3 of 8
