# Find Thevenin Equivalent Resistance for Network

• qwerty2x
In summary, the conversation is about finding the Thevenin Equivalent resistance for a given network. The person attempted to find the resistance by short circuiting the voltage sources and creating an open loop across the current source, but their calculation of 2.74kOhms was incorrect according to their book. They received a reply asking for their calculations and clarification on which resistors they were referring to.

## Homework Statement

Find the Thevenin Equivalent resistance for the network below:

R=(1/R1+1/R2)^-1

## The Attempt at a Solution

Hi all,

to find the resistance i short circuited the volage sources and created an open loop across the current source. Then it looks like the current will not travel through the uppr loop beacuse its in parallel with a short circuit(where the current will rather go). I concluded that by breaking the circuit at Vo we have R1 and R2 in parallel. Which leaves us with the resistance being 2.7K ohm. but that's incorrect according to my book.

Help appreciated thnks

You removed the sources in the correct way, but I'll need to see your calculations if I am going to be able to see your mistake. Can you show your calculations? Also, what do you mean by R_1 and R_2? There are five resistors, not just two.
