Which theorem assists in replacement of an impedance branch over the network by the other network comprising different circuit components, without affecting the VI relations throughout the entire network?
A simple equivalent circuit of the 2 terminal network shown in fig. is
After killing all source equivalent resistance is R

The short circuit current across the terminal is
For the calculation of R_{TH} if we kill the sources
then 20Ω resistance is inactive because 5 A source will
be open circuit

A battery has a shortcircuit current of 30 A and an open circuit voltage of 24 V. If the battery is connected to an electric bulb of resistance 2Ω, the power dissipated by the bulb is
r_{battery }= V_{oc} / I_{sc} = 24/30 = 0.8 ohms
P = V^{2}_{oc} / ( r + 2)^{2 } * 2

A DC voltmeter with a sensitivity of 20 kΩ/V is used to find the Thevenin equivalent of a linear network. Reading on two scales are as follows
(a) 0  10 V scale : 4 V
(b) 0  50 V scale : 5 V
The Thevenin voltage and the Thevenin resistance of the network is

For 0  10 V scale R_{m} = 10 x 20k = 200 kΩ
For 0  50 V scale R_{m} = 50 x 20k = 1 MΩ
For 4 V reading
v_{TH} = 20μR_{TH} + 20µ x 200k = 4 + 20μR_{TH } ...(i)
For 5V reading
