General Physics II Homework 8 Worked Examples Giancoli: 19.10, 19.28, 19.31, 19.32, 19.50, 19.57, 19.71 10. Connecting 3 n of the resistors in series, where n is an integer, will enable you to make a voltage divider with a 4.0 V output. 28. There are three currents involved, and so there must be three independent equations to determine those three currents. One comes from Kirchhoff’s junction rule applied to the junction of the three branches on the left of the circuit. Another equation comes from Kirchhoff’s loop rule applied to the outer loop, starting at the lower left corner, and progressing counterclockwise. The final equation comes from Kirchhoff’s loop rule applied to the bottom loop, starting at the lower left corner, and progressing counterclockwise. Substitute into the top loop equation, so that there are two equations with two unknowns. Solve the bottom loop equation for and substitute into the top loop equation, resulting in an equation with only one unknown, which can be solved.

    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.
