Use engineering papers.
Present your work neatly and clearly.
Problem 1:
Consider the following circuit that consists of multiple series-aiding and series-opposing
batteries, which power a resistance of 10k .
 Indicate whether point A is at higher or lower potential than point B, and explain why.
 Reduce the circuit to a single battery with a net voltage equivalent to the algebraic sum
of all the voltages in the original circuit.
 Show the proper polarity of the battery at points A and B; and
 indicate which way the conventional current flows.
 Calculate the current in mA.
 Calculate the power provided by the battery in mW.
