# Solution to series resistance function

Hi, I cannot solve for the function g(t) (eq. 6) in the attached figure where there are two series resistances. My solution is incomplete. I do not know how to use Vx in this solution, which is needed because it contains h(t) found in the solution.

What is the relationship between voltage and resistance in this circuit?

There are two series resistances, R and Rx which are in series. Vx h(t) is the voltage across the resistor Rx. There is a total V across both series resistors. That is all that is given.

You have been given the voltage Vx when Rx is by itself, you need to find which series resistance R will give the desired voltage V.

The problem is testing that you understand how voltage and resistance are related.
So how are they related?
