For the figure:
a.Determine which components are absorbing power
and which are delivering power.
b. Is conservation of power satisﬁed? Explain your
P = IV
The Attempt at a Solution
First I go through the smaller right loop with D and E
use KVL I have VD = 10V
Use the bigger loop ABEC
-10V - 5V + VA + 3V = 0--->VA = 12V
Based on the current flow A and B are the source and the rest are absorbing power.
simultaneously solve for all the power:
PA = 60w
PB = 15w
PC = 25w
PD = 30w
PE = 20w
PA + PB = PC + PD + PE
=> so the conservation of power is satisfied.
