An ideal 14-V generator and an ideal 12.6-V battery are connected in the circuit shown in Fig. 17.22.
(a) For RA= 2.0 n and R8 = 3.0 n, compute the current through each circuit component (resistors, battery, and generator). ls the battery being charged or discharged?
(b) With RB= 1.0 Ω, find the current through the battery for 0.50 Ω ≤ RA ≤ 10.0 n with ∆RA = 0.50 Ω. Plot the battery current versus RA with RA as the independent variable. Repeat the process with RH= 5.0 and 10.0 n, placing all three curves on the same graph.
