Problem P. 4303. (December 2010)

P. 4303. What is the resistance of the resistor R shown in the figure if a) there is no current in the branch AB; b) the current in AC is the greatest; c) the potential difference between points a and C is maximum; d) the power at R is maximum; e) the current in branch DC is maximum; f) the current in AB is the maximum? (Data: U1=60 V, U2=20 V, R1=80 \Omega, R2=320 \Omega.)

Sorry, the solution is available only in Hungarian. Google translation

Megoldás. \(\displaystyle a)\) \(\displaystyle R=40\ \Omega\)

\(\displaystyle b)\) \(\displaystyle R=0\ \Omega\) (rövidzár)

\(\displaystyle c)\) \(\displaystyle R=\infty\ \) (szakadás)

\(\displaystyle d)\) \(\displaystyle R=6\ \Omega\)

\(\displaystyle e)\) \(\displaystyle R=0\ \Omega\) (rövidzár)

\(\displaystyle f)\) \(\displaystyle R=0\ \Omega\) (rövidzár).
