Circuit question physics help?

  1. Apr 13, 2013 #1
    I have to find i and v in the figure.I first tried using Kirchhoff's second law but then I noticed that in the current 4 A I dont have a potential...How can I apply current and potential division here?
    Will it look smth like v=[4/(4+6)]*14 V?

    You do "have a potential". The voltage across the current source is the same as the voltage across the 6 ohm resistor but does that help.

    Have you applied KCL?
