Determine Vy in the circuit of the below figure:
resistance adding equations for parallel and series
The Attempt at a Solution
So I found Vx=(1.2A)(5ohms) = 6v
Afterwards I computed the current supplier: (6)(0.1)=0.6 A
Then I added the resistance of the parallel resistors and got 1.667 ohms
Then found the voltage drop across it using the 1.2 A and get 2 v.
Seeing how the parallel resistors share the same voltage, I computed the supposed current for each (without the dependent current supply) and get 1 A for the 2 ohm resistor.
Then I added the 1 A to the 0.6 A from before, and then applied ohms law (1.6 A)(2 ohms) to get 3.2.
This is my first time doing a problem regarding dependent sources, please let me know if I am missing any steps or using too many steps.
