i'm given a circuit that contains a 15 volt battery and a resistor that has a power rating of 1/4 watt and a resistance that must be greater than 1 kohm. i'm told that no matter how i set it up, i cannot exceed the 1/4 watt power rating of the resistor. this makes sense. i work out the max power using P = IV and get 0.225 watts. however, the problem then asks me to add capacitors and inductors to the circuit such that the resistor's power rating is exceeded. how would i use capacitors and inductors to do this?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i don't really want an explicit answer but would really appreciate help with the general idea of how this could be done. we haven't covered this but it's on the hw.
