Hi, this is my first time posting, I'm glad there is a space like this where we can share our doubts and hopefully get some help from other students.

As you can see on the image above, there's a KVL applied to the circuit in practice problem 2.6, but my question is the following:

On equation 2.6.1:

-12+4i+2v

_{0}-4

**+6i**=0

for resistance V

_{0}, isn't that supposed to be

**-**6i due to direction of the current?, a resistance can only dissipate which would make obvious the + but even on 2.6.2 it states V

_{0}=

**-**6i, I don't want to ask my teacher because I feel the answer is probably something obvious that I am probably missing. Can anyone please elaborate on why this is being added instead of substracted to the KVL?

Thank you so much!
