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

In the circuit below, the wiper divides the potentiometer resistance between [tex]\alpha R[/tex] and[tex]\ (1- alpha R)[/tex], 0 [tex]\leq[/tex][tex]\alpha[/tex] [tex]\geq 1[/tex]. Find Vo / Vs

2. Relevant equations

KVL

KCL

3. The attempt at a solution

Im thinking that the Pot. Resistance will be R +(1-[tex]\alpha[/tex])R. Then to find the voltage (R +(1-[tex]\alpha[/tex])R)I
