# Question: problem 1 using a series circuit design using vs ...

###### Question details

**Problem #1**

Using a series circuit design...

Using V_{s} = 10V, R_{source} = 10k-ohm,
calculate the **Power** dissipated by
R_{load}, the second resistor in this circuit ranging from
R_{load} = 10 ohms to 100 M-ohms. Create a MATLAB script
that will plot this as P_{out} vs.
R_{source}/R_{load} (ratio). Be prepared to answer
questions regarding this calculation and graph.

Note – it may be useful to use semilogx to view your graph more easily since the resistor values are ranging from 10^1 to 10^8.

**SUBMIT a .m file that can be run in MATLAB.**

**Problem #2 – Please make sure this is submitted
separately from your homework**

Due **on paper** at the start of class
Wednesday.

Additionally, mathematically show what value of R_{load}
will cause MAXIMUM power to be dissipated across R_{load}
in the circuit above. Your findings SHOULD line up with what you
see in your graph in problem #1.
