Its the part c question....which states
C) Suppose we made V = 0. Find the new current running through the 5.00 ohm resistor.
So I just took the biggest loop and did it this way
Sum of V = 0
So starting at the upper left hand corner of the circuit
3A(15 Ohms) + 50 V + I (5) = 0
45 + 50 +5I = 0
5 +5I = 0
I = 1 A
Which is not correct. The answer I think is supposed to be 2.5 Amps but can you tell me what mistake I'm making here.
