1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Find v1, v2, v3 Must be done with nodal analysis 2. Relevant equations I=V/R 3. The attempt at a solution So i started by saying i1 = v2/4, i = v1/2, i3 = v3/3 i + i1 + i2 = 0 v3v2=51 v1v2=0 I am not really sure to what to do from here, i cant seem to come across the right solution, the answer given in the book is v1=3.043, v2=6.956, v3=0.6522 Any help would be much appreciated

Hint: The nodes designated by V1, V2, and V3 are all separated by voltage sources. This implies that you can treat all three nodes as one supernode. Write the nodal equation for the supernode by referencing v1, and note that i = v1/2Ω. (v2 = v1  10V; v3 = v1  10V + 5i).

So is my nodal equation with the super node i + i1 + i2 = 0 ?
The branch including the 6 ohm resister is negligible since it theoretically exits the node and enters it as well? Using this, I ended up solving for v1, but ended up finding v1 = 0, so I must be going in the wrong direction
