Hi guys!

Can you please help me with this task. I can't agree with myself on what the maximum power transfer will be in this circuit.

Here is the circuit: http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2vhyzdh&s=5#.UlfHy1BT538

Task a)

Compute Vth and Rth in this Thevenin-equivalent circuit.

I calculated Vth to be 6 v, and Rth to 6 ohm, and Rs to 2 ohm. .

task b)

Determine R in order to achieve maximum power transfer to it from the rest of the circuit.

Calculate the maximum power transferred.

I calculated P to 40.5w. Is this correct?

Thanks for your help!!
