DC Circuits


1.

At 400 volts, is the dynamic resistance greater or less than at 300 volts for the
non
-
ohmic element of figure 1B? Show calculations or give reasoning to
support your answer
.


a.

Greater than because
V is increasing faster than
I

b.

Greater than because
I is increasing faster than V

c.

Less
than because
V is increasing faster than I

d.

Less

than because
I is increasing faster than V


What are the maximum current ratings for the 220


and 330

, 1 watt resistors on the
battery board?

2.

max current for 220

:



3.

max current for 330

:


If R1 and R2 are 220


and 330


respectively, calculate the equivalent resistance (
)
and the current through the circuit if the potential is supplied by a sta
ndard car battery
(12V). Also calculate the potential drop across each of the resistors individually (V1 and
V2). Show your work.


4.

V2:



If R1 and R2 are 220


and 330


respectively, ca
