Homework Statement
Find the Thevenin equivalent circuit for the portions of the networks in the following circuit:
Kirchoff's Voltage Law: ΣVdrops = ΣVgains
Kirchoff's Current Law: ΣIclosed loop = 0
Ohms Law: V = IR
Determination of the Thevenin Resistance is simple enough, Rth = 2.7 + ((4.7)(3.9)/(4.7+3.9)) = 2.05kΩ
The Thevenin Voltage is what's giving me trouble; if I measure the voltage across the terminals of the branch highlighted in blue how does the 3.9 kΩ resistor not experience any of this thevenin voltage?
