(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Given an ideal power supply of 15 V and a load of 5 kilo ohms, design a circuit using 2 resistors in which the current flowing through the load is close to 2mA

2. Relevant equations

None given (I'm assuming V=IR)

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm a bit confused with this one, I understand that maybe I could have 2 resistors of 3.75 kilo ohms each to cause the current to me 2mA, but I'm unsure of what role the '5 kilo ohm load' has.

Can anyone explain to me what this load is and what role it plays? I can't see it being internal resistance due to the power supply being 'ideal'.

Thanks

Kel
