Superposition with a dependent current source

  1. Mar 4, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I uploaded the assignment it is problem 2

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I really just want confirmation that my work is ok, and the command for a dependent current source in PSpice. The things that I found that are dependent, are very confusing looking things instead of diamonds. I have tried E and F but I don't know how to use them?

    Is there a reason you posted this in Calculus & not physics?

    Hard to tell from your work.

    tell me one thing: how did you employ superposition, in words, not in equations?

    Sorry man I didn't even realize you answered well isn't superposition just the algebraic sum of Ll the individual voltages or currents caused by their separate sources which you find by cutting one of and solving without that source and do the same for the other

    Hard. To write on the ole ipad sorry it autocorrects and I don't catch it sometimes.
