Design a circuit to provide 60 W at 50 V to a resistive lamp from an AC supply of 120 V ± 10% at 60 Hz. The circuit should be energy efficient—that is, it should consume the least power possible.

Design a circuit to charge a 2-µF capacitor from a DC supply of 24 V. The charging current should be limited to 1 mA. The accuracy should be better than 5%.
