    Calculating the Thevenin's Resistance of a Breadboarded Circuit

    How would we calculate the Thevenin's resistance for the above circuit? The right answer for this circuit is 1.5 kOhm. $$R_{567} = R_7 + (R_5 \parallel R_6) = .5 + .67 = 1.2 k\Omega$$ $$R_{34567} = R_3 + (R_4 \parallel R_{567}) = 1 + .75 = 1.75 k\Omega$$ $$R_{TH} = R_1 + (R_2 \parallel...

    Engineering Solving circuit with Thevenin's theorem

    Hey guys, I am supposed to solve for voltage and current on R4 using Thevenin's theorem here. Values are following: U = 100V R1 = 310 R2 = 610 R3 = 220 R4 = 570 R5 = 200 Now, I know I need to solve for Rth and Vth, so I put the circuit into simulation and figured out voltage on R3 is equal to...
