Homework Help: Determine v0

  1. Oct 22, 2008 #1
    i have the circuit below and i need to determine V0 by using two methods:

    1)apply KCL at node a and invoke KVL and OHM's law
    2)transforming the voltage source to an equivalent current source that is combined with the 4mA source.

    Ok let us begin with the 1)

    applying kcl at node a gives:

    then what next?

    please help me
    thank you

    Apply KVL to the 3 loops in the circuit.

    To simplify the circuit further what can you say about R4, R2, and R3?
