a) Plot v s versus i s . b) Construct a circuit model of the practical source that is valid for 0 ≤ i s ≤ 24 mA , based on the equation of the line plotted in (a). (Use an ideal voltage source in series with an ideal resistor.) c) Use your circuit model to predict the current delivered to a 1 kΩ resistor connected to the terminals of the practical source. d) Use your circuit model to predict the current delivered to a short circuit connected to the terminals of the practical source. e) What is the actual short-circuit current? f) Explain why the answers to (d) and (e) are not the same. Fig.(11) 12) It is often desirable in designing an electric wiring system to be able to control a single appliance from two or more locations, for example, to control a lighting fixture from both the top and bottom of a stairwell. In home wiring systems, this type of control is implemented with three-way and four-way switches. A three- way switch is a three-terminal, two-position switch, and a four-way switch is a four terminal, two-position switch. The switches are shown schematically in Fig.(12-a), which illustrates a three-way switch, and Fig.(12-b), which illustrates a four-way switch. a) Show how two three-way switches can be connected between a and b in the circuit in Fig. (12-c), so that the lamp l can be turned ON or OFF from two locations.

### What students are saying

• 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.
