    Can anyone help with thevenins and nortons theorem


    I am trying to do a text book question on networks,

    the question is ,, use thevenins and nortons theorem to determine the current flowing and the voltage across RL in the network diagram,

    i have attatched the diagram.

    i got the nortons resistance to be 3.958ohm
    i got nortons to be 1.768ohm

    i dont know how to do the rest.

    How did you arrive at these two values? Do you mean the first value to be the Thevenin resistance? Whether you are calculating the Norton or Thevenin equivalent resistance for the same circuit, you should obtain the same value.
