Homework Help: Determine the current Iba and the voltage Vba

  1. Sep 21, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Determine the voltage Vx and the power absorbed or supplied by each source
    Determine the current Iba and the voltage Vba

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I tried doing KVL for the right side of the arrow to try and find Vx, but i get terms of (I) the current but don't know how to solve for the current to substitute back into the KVL equation.

    Re: Kvl

    First thing you should note is that the arrow-line Vx isn't a wire. The whole thing is just a single loop circuit. Just use KVL for that single loop and solve for I.
