A resistor is a passive two-terminal electrical component that implements electrical resistance as a circuit element. In electronic circuits, resistors are used to reduce current flow, adjust signal levels, to divide voltages, bias active elements, and terminate transmission lines, among other uses. High-power resistors that can dissipate many watts of electrical power as heat, may be used as part of motor controls, in power distribution systems, or as test loads for generators.
Fixed resistors have resistances that only change slightly with temperature, time or operating voltage. Variable resistors can be used to adjust circuit elements (such as a volume control or a lamp dimmer), or as sensing devices for heat, light, humidity, force, or chemical activity.
Resistors are common elements of electrical networks and electronic circuits and are ubiquitous in electronic equipment. Practical resistors as discrete components can be composed of various compounds and forms. Resistors are also implemented within integrated circuits.
The electrical function of a resistor is specified by its resistance: common commercial resistors are manufactured over a range of more than nine orders of magnitude. The nominal value of the resistance falls within the manufacturing tolerance, indicated on the component.
In electrical circuit there are three resistors and a battery connected in series. After the first two resistors, there is a point connected to the ground. Why is the voltage difference between the ground point and the positive of the battery not 10 volts?
In that circuit, I think that the...
From the graph:
$$lnR(T)=\frac{-lnR(0)T^2_○}{T^2}+lnR(0)$$
I have assumed ##R(0)## to be the value of ##R## at ##1/T^2=0## and ##T_○## to be the value of ##T## at ##lnR(T)=0##
From this I get,
$$R(T)=e^{lnR(0)×\left(1-\frac{T_○^2}{T^2}\right)}$$
$$R(T)=R(0)^{\left(1-\frac{T_○^2}{T^2}\right)}$$...

Since the slope of the I versus V graph is equal to 1/R, I set Rtot equal to 0.168. So then I subtracted 1/0.168 by 1/9 and got 1/R1 =5.841. I then found R1 equal to 1/5.841 or 0.171 but it said I was wrong. Can someone tell me what I did wrong?

Hi guys
I am struggling to find the power dissipated in the total circuit , my answer didn't match the solution in the book
the circuit is simple i used Kirchhoffs rules to find the following :
loop 1 :
$$10-10I_{1}-40I_{3} = 0$$

and $$ I_{1}+I_{2}=I_{3}$$...
I did try redrawing the circuit at steady state , but I'm not really sure. I have attached the circuit that I tried drawing, I assumed the branch with the capacitors to be absent at steady state since current won't flow through them anyway. With this diagram I get the correct answer for Q 19 ...

1. Would k be p/π? (since resistivity of a material is a constant property and π is a constant)
I understand that typically R = pL/A
Therefore, would the equation be R = k(x/(d/2^2))
Confessedly, I truly am baffled.2. R total = sum of individual resistors (in series)
R total = R1 + R2+R3...+Rn...
In my attempt, I tried
1) I1 = I2 + I3
Then set up these two equations based on Kirchhoff's second rule:
2) U1 = R1 (I2) + R3 (I3) and
3) U1 + U2 = R1 (I1) + R2 (I3).
From what we have
10 = 0.1* I_2 + 0.2 * I_3
22 = 0.1* I_2 + 0.02*I_3
I_3 = 50 - 0.5 I_2
That means
I_2 = 233.3 A
I_3 = -66.7A...

To solve this question first I calculated the potential energy the capacitor A stored. It's equal a: Ca.V²/2. Ok, so when switch S1 is open and S2 is closed I calculated the equivalent capacitance as if they were in series --> 1/Ceq = 1/Ca + 1/Cb --> Ceq = (Ca.Cb)/(Ca+Cb). So I used the formula...

I already did part a and got the correct answer of 4.8 microC. However, I am unsure how to approach part b, where the switch is closed and apparently the two capacitors end up with different charges. For part b, since there is a path between the two capacitors, I don't know if I am able to...
Given that they're all on the same branch, I had assumed that they were in series with one another. But with the middle resistor having being on the middle of three branches, it looks parallel.
