Statement of a problem № 42376


A ski resort consists of a few chair lifts and several interconnected downhill runs on the side of a mountain, with a lodge at the bottom. The lifts are analogous to batteries, and the runs are analogous to resistors. Describe how two runs can be in series. Describe how three runs can be in parallel. Sketch a junction of one lift and two runs. State Kirchhoff’s junction rule for ski resorts. One of the skiers happens to be carrying a skydiver’s altimeter. She never takes the same set of lifts and runs twice, but keeps passing you at the fixed location where you are working. State Kirchhoff’s loop rule for ski resorts.
