1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the magnitude of the current in each branch of the circuit shown below, in which B1 = 1.96 V. Specify the direction of each current. diagram: http://img183.imageshack.us/img183/6951/physics.gif [Broken] 2. Relevant equations I1+I2-I3=0 I1+I2=I3 3. The attempt at a solution 22I1+56(I1+I2)-5=0 78I1+56I2=5 EQUATION 1 -56(I1+I2)-75I2+B1 -56I1-131I2=-1.96 56I1+131I2=1.96 EQUATON 2 75I1+56I2=5 I1=(5-56I2)78 PLUGGED THAT INTO EQUATION 2 AND GOT: -.0179.<---- thats wrong. i understand how to solve the equations for an unknown variable. what i want to know is why is my answer coming out wrong? Please help. Once i get this answer I will be able to solve the rest. Thanks.
