Chapter 4, Solution 69. We need the Thevenin equivalent across the resistor R. To find R Th , consider the circuit below. Assume that all resistances are in k ohms and all currents are in mA. 10||40 = 8, and 8 + 22 = 30 1 + 3v o = (v 1 /30) + (v 1 /30) = (v 1 /15) 15 + 45v o = v 1 But v o = (8/30)v 1 , hence, 15 + 45x(8v 1 /30) v 1 , which leads to v 1 = 1.3636 R Th = v 1 /1 = –1.3636 k ohms R Th being negative indicates an active circuit and if you now make R equal to 1.3636 k ohms, then the active circuit will actually try to supply infinite power to the resistor.
