Homework Help: Thevenin equivalent help

  1. Apr 20, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Compute the values of the Thévenin equivalent seen by the 20 kΩ resistor using circuit analysis techniques. Draw the equivalent circuit and list the values.


    2. Relevant equations
    V=IR
    Nodal analysis
    mesh analysis


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I know a Thévenin equivalent is an ideal voltage source and one resistor, but We haven't been taught how to reduce a circuit the appropriate way. I would try to reduce using series/parallel, but that only reduces the 10k and 8.2k resistors.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    There is no 20 kΩ resistor in the picture.
