 Circuit Theorems in AC Analysis True or False

Mark each of the statements below True or False.

 1 . A Thevenin ac equivalent circuit always consists of an equivalent ac voltage source and an equivalent capacitance. [Hint]  True  False 2 . One circuit is equivalent to another, in the context of Thevenin's theorem, when the circuits produce the same voltage. [Hint]  True  False 3 . In order to get maximum power transfer from a capacitive source, the load must have an impedance that is the complex conjugate of the source impedance. [Hint]  True  False 4 . The superposition theorem is useful for the analysis of single-source circuits. [Hint]  True  False 5 . Thevenin's theorem provides a method for the reduction of any ac circuit to an equivalent form consisting of an equivalent current source in parallel with an equivalent impedance. [Hint]  True  False 6 . Norton's theorem provides a method for the reduction of any ac circuit to an equivalent form consisting of an equivalent voltage source in series with an equivalent impedance. [Hint]  True  False 7 . An equivalent circuit is one that produces the same voltage and current to a given load as the original circuit that it replaces. [Hint]  True  False 8 . The superposition theorem is useful for circuit analysis only in ac circuits. [Hint]  True  False 9 . Like Thevenin's theorem, Norton's theorem provides a method of reducing a more complex circuit to a simpler, more manageable form for analysis. [Hint]  True  False 10 . In an ac circuit, power to the load peaks at the frequency at which the load impedance is the complex conjugate of the output impedance. [Hint]  True  False
