Thevenin with inserted source

  1. May 26, 2012 #1
    SOLVED... I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DELETE THE POST.
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Find the power delivered by a source (Is or Vs) connected between terminals a and b, after you've found the V and R Thevenin across those terminals.

    2. Relevant equations
    P=IV Is=given Vth=found Zth=found
    The problem hints that I need to find the other response, but I don't know what they mean by that.


    3. The attempt at a solution
    Vth*Is+Is^2*Rth IS WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR. THANKS ANYWAYS.


    I assumed that for a current source inserted pointing to a, where Vth=Vab, all I would have to do would be multiply Vth*Is to find the power delivered by the source. But it tells me this is wrong by at least an order of magnitude. Help?
