## Homework Statement

One Thevenin theorem result is that the maximum power across the load resistor in the equivalent circuit (and therefore the real circuit) occurs when R

_{L}= R

_{th}. Start with the result that the power dissipated by the load resistor is I

^{2}RL and prove this result.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have really no idea where to begin with this question. I do understand what a Thevenin circuit is, and where i would place a load resistor. Im just looking for some direction as to where to start, or for someone to point me towards what i should be thinking about and working with to get towards an answer.

any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
