## 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
