Homework Help: Super position with AC circuits, not getting what the book is getting! any ideas?

  1. Apr 16, 2006 #1
    Hello everyone!

    I'm doing some more circuit analysis and im stuck on this problem. The says:
    If superpostion is used on the ciruict, find v1 with (a) only 20mA source operating, and (b) with only the -j[/bj]50 mA operating. j is denoting its in rectangular format. In my problem they have both polar and rectangular. This problem would be easy if i used nodal anayslis but its not allowed. So i was wondering where i screwed up. I found equivlant impedance at v1, and then multiplied it by the current, am i not cauclating V1 if i do this?

    Thanks!
