Question details



ICA 4: Voltage and Current Dividers voltage and current dividers throughout the Background: You will use analyzing electric circuits. While the use of voltage straightforward, I frequently see misapplications of thent dividers ks even at the later stages of the course; lets clear things up 201 tlatively is to be able to properly identify series and parallel conntini Remember, the acurately recall the corresponding equations. COMPLETE YOUR and of course, to semester when I frequently see misapplications of the dividers by students the key WORK ON A SEPARATE PIECE(S) OF PAPER! Problem 1 of 3: Consider the circuit to the left in which Vs 10V, Ri 1000, R 2002, R3-302, R34 402, and Rs-502. Using a voltage divider approach, find Vx (Do you see that a preliminary step is necessary before we may opply the voltage divider formulai) Rt R3 up Problem 2 of 3: Consider the circuit to the left in which ls 1.25 A, R1 100Q, Rp200Q, R#300Ω, R4-4000, and R2 R4 Rs Rp500Ω. Use two current dividers to find lx. This will require you to simplify the circuit somewhat R1 through series and parallel combinations. Problem 3 of 3: Re-solve problem 2 using the following steps. STEP 1: Find the equivalent resistance seen by the current source. STEP 2: Multiply Is by the equivalent resistance seen by the current source to find the voltage drop across the current source. STEP 3: Use the voltage found in STEP 2 along with a voltage divider to find the voltage drop across the combination of Rs, and Res. You should see that the voltage divider is between R2 and the R345 combination. STEP 4: Finish the problem by finding Ix using the voltage from STEP 3 along with Ohms law.
