Homework 4 Wheatstone bridge - Spring 2011
The voltmeter (shown by a circle in the diagram) is almost an open circuit, so
you may neglect its current.
(a) Develop an expression for the voltmeter reading Vo in terms of R
Homework 3 - Spring 2011.
A two-wire dc power distribution circuit supplies six 100 W lamps located 250 ft from a
dc generator. The generator voltage is 120 V and the lamp voltage should be 110 V or
more. Calculate the current drawn by each lamp if its vo
(a) Two resistors are connected in series R1 = 12 k and R2 = 9.1 k. Sketch a circuit showing the series
connection of these two resistors with a battery. Calculate the series equivalent of the two resistors. If
1. Two resistors R1 = 5.6 k and R2 = 3.3 k are to be connected in series. Calculate the series
equivalent resistance Rs.
