Homework Statement
I am to find the thevenin equivalent circuit without the load resistor (to the left of terminals a &b
Homework Equations
From class notes:
1 Remove the load resistor
2 find the open circuit voltage across a & b
3 Remove all voltage sources (replace with short circuit)
4 Detrmine the equivalent circuit resistance across the break
5 Form an equivalent circuit
The Attempt at a Solution
I have not come across the symbol that looks like an 8 with the 2amps next to it so far, and i dont understand how this will effect my circuit, is it a voltage source, how will it effect the resistors?
Without acknowledging it,
my resistors are all in parralel so Restance total is
1/RT = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3
1/RT = 1/4 + 1/12 + 1/1
1/RT = 3/12 + 1/12 + 12/12
1/RT = 16/12
RT = 12/16
RT = 0.75
32v/0.75 ohms = 42.667 Amps
Vab = 32  1x42.667Amps = 10.667 Volts
Resistance looking in has already been calulated as 0.75 ohms
