EE40 Summer 2011 Neel Shah Homework 1 Due 6/29/2011 Problem 1. Voltage Source Resistance Let's say we have a 5 volt battery that we want to use to drive a motor. We first hook up an ideal ammeter to the (fully charged) battery to find out what its maximum current delivery can be. We get a reading of 8 amps. What is the source resistance of the battery? Next we hook up this battery to the motor, which requires 5 watts of power at 5 volts. Can this battery drive the motor? Why or why not? (Hint - model the motor as a resistor. What would its value be?) Problem 2. Wheatstone Bridge A strain gauge is a resistor whose resistance changes based on an applied force. We wish to measure this unknown resistance using a wheatstone bridge circuit, shown below. The circuit is powered by an ideal 10 volt battery and an ideal voltmeter is placed in the middle of the circuit. The voltmeter output will change based on the unknown resistance.

    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.
