Say that circuit 1 is the left side of the above circuit (ignore the dots), and circuit 2 is the right side (R_in).

First I have to find V_signal using kirchoff rules
so I get V_signal -R_out - V_out, perfect - R_n = 0

But I am not sure what happens with R_in >> R_out, R_in << R_out or when R_in = R_out.

I can't make heads or tails of your equation.

V_signal -R_out - V_out, perfect - R_n = 0
Do you mean this?

[tex]V_{signal}-R_{out}-V_{out,perfect}-R_n=0[/tex]

That's what it looks like, but if that is in fact the equation that it makes no sense. You're subtracting voltages and resistances, which have totally different units.
