Unformatted text preview: a low level of electric current to treat an area of infected tissue. However, in order to be safe, there is a limit on the electric power which can go through the healthy tissue. You want to test the limits of your new therapy by finding the resistance of a healthy tissue sample which in turn sets the limit on the voltage that can be applied in treatment. To test the tissue, it was placed in series with a voltage source and a separate known circuit of two parallel resistors ( ) which was used to regulate the current through the sample. (a) If the current through the test resistors are and the voltage source has a p...
