Abstract: The purpose of the experiment is to determine the load resistance; this will in turn maximize the power transferred from the DC voltage source to the resistive load. It was found that when the resistor was equal to that of the resistive load the power was greatest. The higher the ohm value of the resistor the lower the value of the power was. Objective: The objective of the laboratory was to determine which resistance would create the largest value for the power from the DC voltage source. Theory: The maximum amount of power will be dissipated when that resistance is equal to the resistance of the Thevenin resistance, which is supplying the power. If the resistance is lower or higher than the Thevenin resistance then the power dissipated will be less than that of the max power. Power = voltage^2/resistance, this equation was used
