PHYS345 Electricity and Electronics

Hint for E3.6

Refer to E2.6.

You may assume a particular voltage and current (or power) if you wish, but the fractional increase of surge current should be independent of those particulars. For example, you may consider a typical room lamp (100 W, 115 V) or the flashlight lamp from the laboratory exercise (3.0 V, 0.32 A). if you would like some numerical values with which to work.
