(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); resistor value ....

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

see the attached diagram

2. Relevant equations

What value of resistor in the place of the 33 ohm resistor would draw maximum power from the rest of the circuit and what power would it draw?

3. The attempt at a solution

I can figure out the currents flowing in different branches of the circuit using maxwell mesh network analysis. But I did not have a clue of how to solve the problem. I know what power dissipation is and how to work it out, but the given question is giving me headaches.
