I am troubled by this question. The book for this new course seems to have different terminology then what I am accustom to. I'm stuck on this question, because I don't understand what it is asking.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

question) A particular signal source produces an output voltage of [itex] 30\,mV [/itex] when loaded by a [itex] 100\,k\Omega [/itex] resistor and [itex] 10\,mV [/itex] when loaded by a [itex] 10\,k\Omega [/itex] resistor. Calculate the Thévenin voltage, Norton current, and source resistance.

answer) not sure.

my guess is that there is some signal source, say [itex] V_s [/itex] that is in series with a resistor, say [itex] R_s [/itex]. [itex] R_s [/itex] (which is the source resistance) is then connected in series to a load resistor, say [itex] R_L [/itex]. Where [itex] R_L [/itex] has the values [itex] R_L=\{100\,k\Omega, 10\,k\Omega \} [/itex].

So when you load the signal source with these resistance values, an output of [itex] 30\, mV [/itex] and [itex] 10\, mV [/itex] is measured respectively.

Where do I measure this voltage? Across just the signal source? Across the load? Across the resistor and signal source?

Any help would be very appreciative.
