- Homework Statement
- Graph the power dissipated in each resistor as a function of its resistance.

- Relevant Equations
- P=VI

I am solving #5 in the attached image.

So I am graphing the power dissipated by a series circuit which : (a) Contains a constant voltage source and a variable resistor, R (b) Contains a constant current source and a variable resistor.

It makes sense to me to just use the power equation that allows me to define the constant from each series and the power will be determined by what relationship R shares with P in said equation.

Just wondering if I have the right approach.
