The circuit of interest is attached.

The question is to solve for I1, I2, I3, I4, and V_diode.

My question is will the variables come out to be numbers or dependent on R?This is how I did it and it depends on R:

I3=0 b/c of the open.

The branch with the open is pretty much not there.

Thus,

KCL: I1+I2=I4

KVL gives 2 equations:

1-2R*I1+R*I2=0

-R*I2-R*I4+1=0

So I guess I1, I2, I4, and V_diode will not solve to be numbers and will depend on R? Or did I do this all wrong?
