Load

(a) For the circuit in Figure 2, what should ZL be to ensure that maximum average power is delivered to the load (that is, average power dissipated by ZL is maximum)? Specify what components ZL would consist of, egs., a resistor and capacitor in series, or resistor and inductor, and what values these are.

(b) For the value of ZL you found in (a), what is the average power dissipated by the load ZL ?

Problem 4 (10 points)

We would like to adjust the load inductor L so that the voltage of the source v(t), and the current i(t), as indicated in Figure 4, have the same phase at ω = 104 rad/sec. What value of L will achieve this? Figure 4:
