Homework Help: Finding the voltage

  1. Feb 14, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Loop 1 is the far left loop with mesh current i_1. Loop 2 is the right one with mesh current i_2. BOTH CURRENTS ARE GOING IN THE CW direction.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    This got cut off while scanning... but I multiplied i_2 with 12kOhms to get my V0.

    Heres my work. Can you verify if this is correct, I am having doubts.

    Yeah it's correct.

    Are you sure? My online system said it was incorrect. I came to have (- .198) * 12 = -2.37

    I tried both +2.37 and -2.37, and it said it was incorrect.

    I don't see any mistakes on your part. But I got a slightly different answer in v0 = (-0.19853)*12 = -2.3824A.

    Heh, so little makes a difference :)

    -2.38 it is...
