What is the peak to peak Voltage across a 10 kilo ohm resistor that dissipates 50 mW?

  • Fund. of Electronics -

    The rms voltage Vrms satisfies the equation

    P = 50*10^-3 W = Vrms^2/R = V^2/50*10^3 ohms

    Vrms^2 = 50^2
    Vrms = 50 V

    The peak to peak voltage is higher by a factor of sqrt2

    V(p-p) = 70.7 V
