T F 1.

When the

equals the
source resistance
, maximum power is delivered
to the load from the source.

T F 2.

When maximum power is delivered to the load, load power dissipation equals

source resistance power dissipation.

T F 3.

Under maximum power transfer, the efficiency factor is 100%.

T F 4.

50%.

T F 5.

ter than
50%.

, load voltage is 50% of the source voltage.

T F 7.

At maximum power transfer, load current is 50% of maximum source current.

is used to simplify circuit analysis where two or more
sources are present.

T F 10.

To disable other multiple voltage sources for purposes of calculations, consider them
open circuited.

T F 11.

The final results obtai
ned from the superposition theorem are determined by

T F 12.

necessary using superposition theorems.

T F 13.

Thevenin's theorem

is

used to simplify complex networks to a simple voltage

source with its source resistance.

T F 14.

Solving a Thevenized circuit is as simple as solving a single resistor series circuit.

T F 15.

Thevenin's theorem deals with a simple parallel equival
ent circuit.

T F 16.

calculated.

T F 23.

T F 24.

The first step in Nortonizing a circuit is to

T F 25.

Norton's equivalent circuit is comprised of a constant current source with a

shunt (parallel) Norton resistance.

T F 26.

Thevenin's equivalent circuit is comprised of a voltage source with a series

Thevenin's resistance.

T F 27.

Norton's and Thevenin's theorems can be used on any network using any components.

T F 28.

Ohm's law cannot be used to calculate for voltage or current distributions

when using superposition, Thevenin or Norton equivalent circuits.

T F 29
.

Norton current is determined by assigning a value of zero ohm to the load resistance.

T F 30.

Norton resistance is found by looking back into the source from the open load
terminals (
with the current source opened
).

T F 31.

Thevenin's resistanc
e is found by looking back into the source from the open

with the voltage source shorted
).

T F 32.

Voltage sources must be shorted, current sources must be opened, and loads

must be removed to determine source resistance.
