- Homework set J is available.

### Nov. 10, 2016

- Solutions to all the pertinent quizzes and homeworks are available.
- Here is the exam 2 formula sheet so that you can see what sorts of useless information
you will have available at your fingertips during the exam.

### Nov. 8, 2016

- Exam 2 review session: Wednesday (11/9) at 8:00 p.m. in Hoover 1227, which is the
classroom for the afternoon section.
- From a quick review of the quizzes from Monday, it would appear that some more practice with
complex might be appropriate. Therefore, Wednesday's quiz will be over complex number arithmetic,
similar to Monday's quiz.
- Here is a previously-used exam 2. Use it as you see fit.

### Nov. 1, 2016

- HW set I is available. Be sure to note the due date. Sorry that it took me
a while to make it available, but I was feeling bit creative and made several brand new
problems. I hope you like them.

### Oct. 31, 2016

- The people have spoken: Exam 2 will be on Nov. 11.

### Oct. 25, 2016

- Note that Quiz 17 (Wed., Oct. 26) will be over basic properties of inductors and capacitors, somewhat similar to Quiz 16. We are
not yet ready for quizzes on transients.
- Some exam statistics: (40 points total, 164 students took the exam)

overall average: 32.6

standard deviation: 4.52

13 perfect scores

morning lecture average: 32.6

afternoon lecture average: 32.7

Comments on homework, based on questions during office hours today:

- The answer to problem 27 is unusual - and perhaps a bit surprising. Don't be thrown off track if
you get an unexpected answer. This is simply a fluke of the numbers chosen for the components - there is
nothing profound in the strange result.
- To complete Problem 31, you should read the last page of the Thevenin equivalents lecture slides. It
explains exactly how to choose RL for maximum power.
- Problem 32 is a bit confusing because I used the same component names in both the original circuit and
the model. I have changed the resistor names in the original circuit. Hopefully, this reduces potential confusion.
The name changes do not affect anything else -- you will use the same methods and the same component values, and you will
get the same answers.

### Oct. 9, 2016

- There will be no quiz on Monday. We can probably use a bit of a breather after the exam.
Also, we want to have the maximum time available to talk amplifiers.
- Homework set F is on the web site.
- Try to read ahead a bit on the amplifier, feedback, and op-amp material to help prepare
for the op amp lab for this week.

### Oct. 6, 2016

Here are the answers to the practice exam:

Prob. 1, I_{S} = 19.4 mA. (Can be positive or negative.)

Prob. 2, i_{R2} = 0.591 A.

Prob. 3, v_{R4} = -48 V.

Prob. 4, v_{R2} = 11.3 V.

HW set B is available. Since this is getting to you late, I've shortened
it so that the work is more appropriate to the time available.
