Homework Help: Simplify sources in circuit

  1. Sep 12, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I've been struggling with simplifying this circuit, eliminating a bunch of sources and moving around stuff in general. I'm still very unsure of how to handle nodes with multiple sources though. Like in the picture I've attached. I've got a voltage source and a current source in the same node. The wires leading off into nowhere has a bunch of resistors and what not attached to them.

    So can I simplify this node in any way here or is it time to start assembling my KCL equations?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Are those "hanging" wires connected to other things? If so, there's no simple answer. You'll have to show the whole circuit.

    I don't believe it can be simplified without taking those other components into account.
