Determine the current in each branch of the circuit where R = 14.00 Ω, and V = 20.0 V.

(a) branch containing resistor R

(b) branch containing the 4.00 V source

(c) branch containing the voltage source V

2. Relevant equations

N/A

I have already completed the problem, but I want a bit of an explanation why things are they way they are in regards to the equations below:

I1+I2+I3 = 0

V1 - 6I1 - 14I3 = 0 (Left loop)

6I1 - 4I2 - V1 + V2 (Right loop)

Thanks for your help. I understand the one about the left loop, it's the right loop equation I am a bit hung up on.
