Homework Statement Find the value of Vk http://oi54.tinypic.com/2s6x005.jpg Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution Assuming dependent Vk = 12i -60 + 4i + 12i + 12i = 0 -60 + 28i = 0 i = 2.14 Vk = 12 * 2.14 = 25 .68 ? Answer is 18. Can someone tell me where I am going wrong ?
2. ### Engineering Badic Circuit - Nodal Analysis

Yeah .2 resitors in parallel give .1.I think decimals keep messing me up. I tried using conductance to avoid decimals. Still going wrong somewhere. Node1 -3+ 5v1 + 10 v1 -10 v1=0 V1 = 10v2 + 3/ 15 Substituting v1 in Node 2 -6 + 2v2 + 10 ( v2 - v1) =0 -6 + 12v2- 10( 10v2 + 3 /...
3. ### Engineering Badic Circuit - Nodal Analysis

But I assumed the direction of current entering node 1 to be - so + 3 will become -3. Wouldn't that make the current leaving node 2 to be + so -6 stayed the same?

17. ### Java Java-Bit Binary Number

Mark-not to use loops in general. Since this is like the first chapter. He introduced us to loops today. Grep- where exactly do I go on that page? binaryString? He told me to use charAt or go about converting each substring to a value of bit.
18. ### Java Java-Bit Binary Number

The problem is , he is not letting me use loop for this problem. Grep- is there a way to implement charAT in the method without the use of loop?

28. ### Java Java- reverse sentence

Thank you , Mark and Jared. Mark- Yes, that is correct. I have used substring . When I assign a substring a number value like in the given example ; it gives out an error. Yes, another person used a loop for my problem . Here is the code for that: http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=jai2dl&s=7...
29. ### Java Java- reverse sentence

Well , what I did reversed the order of the letters along with the sentence. I just want the sentence to be reversed. Sorry, I didn't quite get what you said there. Can you give me an example? Thanks. I want to know, if I can reverse just the sentence not letters without the use of loop?

39. ### Alternating Series Test

Yes, I am aware of the Geometric Series test. That was not my question. My question is how did you derive to answer zero when you replaced n with ∞. I am aware that (2/3)^n is a geometric series.I am having trouble with taking the limit of (2/3)^n. i.e. when lim n-->∞ 1/n = 1/∞ = 0...

49. ### Physics conversion problem ?

The electron-volt, eV, is a unit of energy (1 eV = 1.602 10^-19 J, 1 MeV = 1.602 x 10^-13 J). Since the unit of momentum is an energy unit divided by a velocity unit, nuclear physicists usually specify momenta of nuclei in units of MeV/c, where c is the speed of light (c = 2.998 108 m/s). In the...
