Homework Help: Electric Circuits problem - Superposition

  1. Jun 15, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The problemas statement is:
    "Find Vo and Io by the superposition principle"

    2. Relevant equations
    Nodal Analysis and The Superposition Theorem.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    So, I tried to shutdown first the independent 30V tension font. It led me to Vo = 8V.
    Then, turning off the 6A current font, led me to Vo = 2V.
    So the final Vo will be equation the sum of the two others: 10V.

    The correct anwser is 17,99V(so, Io = 1,799A).
    Thank you!

    You'll have to show some more details about your attempt, particularly the part concerning the 6 A source operating alone (that is, when the 30 V source is suppressed). Show your work.

    Just got it! Finally.
    I'll upload my answer and mark topic as solve
