Finding Current in Circuit

  1. Feb 26, 2013 #1
    I have attached the circuit of interest.
    The 2 resistors of of resistance R. V1 and V2 are the voltage sources. 'I' is the current we're solving for.

    Using KVL, we get:
    -V1-R*I+V2-R*I=0
    Rearranging:
    V1-V2=-2R*I
    (V2-V1)/(2R)=I


    My answer doesn't seem to match the solutions. Am I missing something here?

    Why? What does the "solution" say ?

    (Looks good to me.)
