1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data a. Find the voltages Va, Vb, and Vc. b. Find the currents I1 and I2. 2. Relevant equations Ohm's Law, Current Divider 3. The attempt at a solution My first attempt was to redraw the circuit. I know that these voltages are with respect to ground. Therefore Va to Ground is 36v. However, I know the answer to Vb is 60v and I do not understand why. I know it is probably due to a misunderstanding as to how the current flows in this circuit. In my mind, the current from the 60v source branches out towards R3 and R1, but I have a strong feeling that is wrong. My mind also tells me that the current chooses one direction. I know in simple series circuits, if there are two voltage sources in opposing directions, the higher source will force its direction, and that is how it is chosen. How is it chosen in this case? I think this will help me better understand how to find Vb and Vc.
