Homework Statement
Find Vx using source transformation
Homework Equations
V=IR
KVL
The Attempt at a Solution
After doing source transformation on the three pairs of current sources and resistors...
KVL:
6+2IVx+4I3+3I+5I2=0
14IVx11=0
but Vx=5I (is it? i'm not so sure about this)
14I5I11=0
1I=11
I=1.222 A
Vx=5I=5(1.222)
Vx=6.11 V
Did I do the source transformation right? Also, I'm confused with the value of Vx. Is it 5I or just 5I? Because in our class, our convention is that when a current source is transformed into a voltage source, the part where the arrow head in the current source becomes the positive terminal for the voltage source. But since we're only dealing with a resistor here, I just followed our convention for the KVL (the voltage across 5 ohms is positive since the mesh current enters the positive terminal)
