For analog voltmeters, look for a speciﬁcation with units of ohms per volt ( /V). This is usually printed on the face of the meter itself, as shown in Fig. 23. To get Rin , multiply this number by the full scale voltage selected. 5 V full scale setting. 5 = 50 k . 3. You may have to analyze the instrument circuitry itself. The relevant question is: when a voltage is applied to the input of the instrument, how much current ﬂows into the instrument? Then, by Ohm’s Law, the input resistance is just the ratio of this voltage and current.

37) (R1 + R4 )(R2 + R3 ) + R1 R4 the same expression obtained with the standard method. Thevenin’s theorem Finally, we solve this problem by using Thevenin’s theorem. We form the required two terminal network by removing R4 and taking the two terminals at the points where R4 was attached. This is shown in Fig. 19. The remaining circuit should look familiar – if we combine R2 and R3 it is the previously considered voltage divider. Thus Vth = V0 R2 + R3 R1 + R2 + R3 = 65 V. 19 First step in solving the problem using Thevenin’s theorem.

Such a representation is shown in Fig. 16. The point can also be represented using the length |ˆz| of the line from the origin to the point and the angle θ this line makes with the positive horizontal axis: zˆ = |ˆz|(cos θ + j sin θ ). 56) |ˆz| and θ are also referred to as the magnitude and phase of zˆ . 16 A complex number as represented by a point in the complex plane. 6 Using complex numbers in electronics 45 and θ = tan−1 b . 56) can be cast in a more useful form by employing the Taylor expansions for sine, cosine, and the exponential: cos θ + j sin θ = 1 − θ2 θ4 + − ··· 2!
