# maximize this power dissipated by load

See attached file for full problem description.

Given the adjacent circuit, with voltage source Vin and source resistance R1, what is the power dissipated across R2? (Remember, P=I^2*R = IV) In terms of R1, what is the value of R2 that will maximize this power (show all work)?
