6. In synchronized Unijunction Transistor (UJT) triggering of a Silicon Controlled Rectifier (SCR) voltage V_c across capacitor reaches Unijunction Transistor (UJT) threshold voltage thrice in each half-cycle so that there are three firing pulses during each half-cycle. The firing angle of the Silicon Controlled Rectifier (SCR) can be controlled

7. A group of young electronic engineers were engrossed in a Lab project, and they decided to use a mini generator as the voltage source. The ideal voltage of the generator was 12 V, with an internal resistance of 0.5 W. These engineers also wanted to obtain a stable output voltage source, so they decided to add a load resistor to the mini generator. What value of the resistor should they add to achieve this goal?

A. 20 ohms

B. 30 ohms

C. 40 ohms

D. 50 ohms

B. 2.5 V

C. 3.5 V

D. 4.5 V

9. Kusi, an electrical engineer, was engrossed in designing an inverting amplifier circuit with a closed-loop gain of 25 using an op-amp with an open-loop gain of 100,000. But later, he decided to change the op-amp to one with an open-loop gain of 200,000. Curious to know what the new closed-loop gain would be, he posed the question “If I replace the op-amp with another one that has an open-loop gain of 200,000, what closed-loop gain will I obtain?

A. Doubles

B. Drops to 12.5

C. Remains at 25

D. Increases slightly
