hi,
thanks for taking time to try and help me out, i have hit a brick wall with these questions, i have made an attempt and dont no where to go from there, and feed back would be great thanks alot...

The problem
Using both Norton’s and Thevenin’s theorem determine the power dissipated in the 4Ω resistance.

If the 4Ω resistance was removed calculate the value of load that will result in maximum power being transferred

Calculate the value of power transferred

the circuit has a:-
60 V supply
10Ω
10Ω
20Ω




1.5Ω


Homework Equations


I = V
Z
P= I^2R


The Attempt at a Solution


I = V
Z
= 60
58.5
= 1.02
P= I^2R
= 1.02^2 * 4
= 4.426 W
I = V
Z
= 60
54.5
1.10
P= I^2R
= 1.10^2 * 54.5
= 65.945 w

You should post a schematic of your problem.

It might be seen sooner if you upload to an image hosting site, and post the link here.
