Homework Statement


Find v1 and v2 from the given picture.


Homework Equations



Ohm's law, V=IR
Current Division

The Attempt at a Solution



I tried to use current division. The 6A source split into 2, giving 2A down the 8 ohm resistor and 4 amperes down the 4 ohm resistor. Since 10A goes out of the second node, 6A must come up from the ground.

I know one equation would be (V2-V1) = 16. I just can't seem to find the other equation. =/

Try Kirchhoff's circuit laws

You have three loop.

Besides, 8 Ohm:(4+2) Ohm

do you have the answers
I got v1 = 4.2 A & v2 = 16.8
and voltage = 33.6
I want to know if I did it right or not
