Here is a problem that emerged some time ago: We needed to measure the emf(electromotive force) and internal resistance of a car battery. The only instruments were voltmeter and ammeter. ...
I want to create a set of silicon based materials that have been doped with different materials and/or different amounts of dopants. The purpose of this is to see how the spring constant of silicon ...
I'm a tutor. This is a high school level problem. In high school, every one have might have solved a problem of effective resistance of a ladder of resistors having infinite steps. Now the problem is ...
Why is using a Wheatstone bridge such an accurate way of calculating an unknown resistance? What are the benefits of using it over Ohm's law? It seems that it has something to do with the wires ...
This question is motivated by this xkcd comic strip . The problem is indeed interesting, and my first recollection upon reading this was a similar problem in the book Problems in General Physics by ...
I have the following circuit. All the inverters are ideal CMOS. I need to draw the waveforms for each point (A, B, D, E, Vo), given that waveform at input. What I want to ask is if what I did so ...
Suppose we have a cylindrical resistor, with resistance given by $R=\rho\cdot l/(\pi r^2)$ Let $d$ be the distance between two points in the interior of the resistor and let $r\gg d\gg l$. Ie. it is ...
I searched and couldn't find it on the site, so here it is (quoted to the letter): On this infinite grid of ideal one-ohm resistors, what's the equivalent resistance between the two marked nodes? ...
