17. For the circuit below, use the node-voltage approach to find the power being dissipated in each of the resistors. In the circuit, I S1 = 0.2 A, V S = 12 V, I S2 = 0.4 A R 1 = 200 Ω , R 2 = 100 Ω , R 3 = 500 Ω , R 4 = 150 Ω , and R 5 = 50 Ω . + R 1 R 2 R 3 R 4 R 5 I S1 I S2 V S P R1 = ______________________ ; P R2 = ______________________ P R3 = ______________________ ; P R4 = ______________________ P R5 = ______________________

18. For the circuit below, find the value of I S so that the power being dissipated in R 4 is 45 mW. (Suggestion: Write the node-voltage equations for the circuit as you normally would, and then use the power specification above to work backwards towards finding the required value for I S .) For the circuit, V S = 35 V, R 1 = 5 k Ω , R 2 = 10 k Ω , R 3 = 5 k Ω , R 4 = 5 k Ω . + V S I S R 1 R 2 R 3 R 4 I S = ___________________________________________

19. Use the node-voltage method to find voltages at each of the nodes in the circuit below. Choose one node to be ground. (Choose carefully!) Of course, its voltage will be 0. Find the voltages of the other nodes with respect to the ground you have chosen. For the circuit, I S1 = 20 mA, V S = 15 V, I S2 = 5 mA R 1 = 1 k Ω , R 2 = 2 k Ω , R 3 = 3 k Ω , R 4 = 4 k Ω , R 5 = 5 k Ω , and R 5 = 6 k Ω . + I S1 I S2 R 1 R 3 R 4 R 2 R 5 R 6 V S a b c d e v a = ____________________ ; v b = ____________________ ; v c =__________________ v d = ______________________ ; v e = ______________________

    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.
