  1. Jul 7, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    In the circuit shown, what is the potential difference VPQ?


    2. Relevant equations
    No relevant equations given in question

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Tried kirchoff's law.

    Tried to find equivalent battery and resistance but that doesnt seem to be possible.

    You need to show what you've tried so we can see where you went wrong.
    You can take photos of your working and post them here using the 'UPLOAD' button (ensure that they are clear and easy to read) or you can simply type out your equations here.

    There will be counter-clockwise current around the right-hand "loop", and clockwise current around the left-hand "loop". Use these in Kirchoff.
