Homework Help: Nodal analysis

  1. Jan 25, 2005 #1
    Hi all,
    I have a question on nodal analysis,
    if I have the following part of a circuit
    Code (Text):

    I -->
    -G1-------N----5G1-----
              |            |+
             G1          ideal volt source
              |            |-

     G    R    O    U     N   D

     
    Is it possible that power absorbed by 5G1 is 0, i.e. voltage on the node N = voltage of the ideal voltage source? That's what I have, and not sure that it's possible. Thanks in advance.

    When the voltage at the node n=the ideal voltage source, it looks like a short between tow points to me. A short, if the internal resistance is undetectable, then there is no energy loss which I will say it is possible for 5G1=0.
