## Homework Statement

What would happen if the load resistor was short-circuited. What would happen if the load resister was removed?

-see attached diagram-

## Homework Equations

P=Iin^2*R

Pz=IzVz

=(Iin-Iout)Vz=[((Vin-Vz)/R)-Iout]Vz

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm not sure about short circuited, but I think that if it is removed then the current Iout would be greater, which would give us a smaller power rating, but i'm not sure how to figure it out!

Any help would be great!!!
