Homework Help: Electric Circuits - Superposition and Mesh Analysis

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

    Exercise 4.15 on the image. Screenshot_2016-06-15-23-01-06.jpg The exercise asks for the value of the current I using superposition

    2. Relevant equations

    Superposition theorem, nodal and mesh analysis

    3. The attempt at a solution
    1466042652843837493614.jpg I think i am doing the mesh analysis wrong, but can't see where. Can someone give me feedback?

    Thank you, ppl!

    Where the 2A current divides---some goes through the 2Ω and some goes through the 3Ω---these will not be equal currents.

    I anticipate that when you take a closer look at this part of your working you will spot your mistake.
