Note: This is a past paper, I'm simply revising for an exam. But I thought that this was the best forum to stick it in.

R1 = V1/I1

Rp = (V2-V1)/(I2-I1) = R1||R2

R2 = RpR1/(Rp-R1)

R1 = 0.5/280x10-6 = 1785.71 ohms

Rp = (0.54 - 0.5) / (680x10-6 - 250x10-6) = 0.04 / 4x10-4 = 100ohms = R1||R2

R2 = RpR1/(Rp-R1) = 178571 / (-1685.71) = -105.9322185 = -105.93 ohms

V1 = 0.5V

## Homework Equations

R1 = V1/I1

Rp = (V2-V1)/(I2-I1) = R1||R2

R2 = RpR1/(Rp-R1)

## The Attempt at a Solution

R1 = 0.5/280x10-6 = 1785.71 ohms

Rp = (0.54 - 0.5) / (680x10-6 - 250x10-6) = 0.04 / 4x10-4 = 100ohms = R1||R2

R2 = RpR1/(Rp-R1) = 178571 / (-1685.71) = -105.9322185 = -105.93 ohms

V1 = 0.5V
