Homework Help: Circuits (Nodal and loop anal. finding current through branch)

  1. Jan 26, 2014 #1
    I am trying to solve for isc. The correct answer is isc = 6mA but I got 0 mA.

    My equations must be correct... If they are not please someone explain why.

    Thank you.

    That's a rather difficult image to read: sideways and illuminated through a partially open blind.

    Your choices for i1 & i2 are not the most convenient.

    It looks to me like:

    Ix = i2 = isc


    2Ix = i2 - i1 .
