.
Hint: writing down the loopcurrent equations in terms of the
symbols will give you most of the marks.

Determine the Thevenin equivalent circuit of the circuit shown below.
Hint: determine and .

Consider the following circuit:
 What is the Thevenin equivalent voltage?
 What is the Thevenin equivalent resistance?
 For a variable load resistance placed externally between the
terminals A and B, plot the current through the load as a
function of . Label the intercepts on both axes.

Sketch the current through a load resistance as a function of
for the circuit shown below.
Label both intercepts and the slope.

Find the voltage, , across the 3 load resistor for the
circuit below by replacing the remaining circuit by its Thevenin
equivalent. Hint: You can check your answer by direct analysis
of the entire circuit.
