ECE 2300 CIRCUIT ANALYSIS HOMEWORK #3 1. a) Find the power delivered by the source in this circuit. b) Find the voltage v X . + - v S = 9[V] R 1 = 1[k ] R 2 = 2.7[k ] R 3 = 1.5[k ] R 5 = 3.3[k ] R 4 = 5.6[k ] R 6 = 2.2[k ] + - v X (PWA Problem 1 in Module 2) 2. A voltmeter is used in series with a resistor to obtain a new voltmeter with the ability to read a higher voltage. The combination is given in the circuit here. The original voltmeter has a meter resistance of 10[k ], and reads up to 2[V] full-scale. a) The goal is to have a new voltmeter that can read up to 50[V]. What value of resistor R V should be used to make this happen? b) When 18[V] is applied to this series combination, with R V as found in part a), what will the original voltmeter read on the 2[V] scale? (PWA Problem 7 in Module 2) Voltmeter R V v T + - v M + - B A V

3.2 3. A measurement of an unknown resistor R X is attempted using a voltmeter and an ammeter, as shown in the circuit here. The intention is to simultaneously measure the current through the resistor with the ammeter, and the voltage across the resistor with the voltmeter. The resistance will then be obtained from the ratio of these two readings. For this problem, assume that the meter resistance for the ammeter is 100[ ], and for the voltmeter is 10[k ]. a) Find the ammeter reading, if R X is 2.7[k ]. b) Find the voltmeter reading, if R X is 2.7[k ]. c) Find the ratio of the voltmeter reading to the ammeter reading. d) How much error is there in this resistance measurement? e) What resistance is this technique really measuring? (PWA Problem 8 in Module 2) 4. A voltmeter has a full-scale reading of 5[V], and a resistance of 50[k ]. Consider each of the following cases, one at a time, for the circuit shown below. a) Find the magnitude of the voltage read by this voltmeter, if it is placed between terminals a and c.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
