A Norton equivalent network having current I and resistance R is separately loaded with a voltage source, a current source, and a resistor as shown below. For each load case, determine the value of the load (V_L , I_L or R_L ) in terms of I and R that maximizes the power delivered to the load. Additionally, determine the maximized power delivered to the load.
The network shown below contains a resistor having an unknown resistance R. Determine the numerical value of R that maximizes the power dissipated in that resistor. Additionally, determine the maximized power. Hint: Can you use the results from Part A?
