Hey, so I have this loop circuit that has some input voltage V in series with a resistor with a resistance of R and another in series resistor that is my load resistance, lets call it G. V and R are not variables, only G is.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know that because of Jacobi's law, to maximize the power dissipated by the load resistance, you have to have G = R.

But I'm wondering how i should maximize the voltage drop across the load resistor? I just can't figure out how to write an equation and go from there.

Also, how can i maximize the current going into the load resistor?

Please help,

Thanks
