# Homework Help: Thevenin's Equivalent circuit

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

3. The attempt at a solution

as you see I can't obtain Vt=(alpha)it+(Beta) that alpha is thevenin resistance and beta is Thevenin voltage.if there is no problem could you tell me
1-when we find vt or it value instead of their linear equation what does it man?
2-In above circuit can we find i1 value?
3-In above circuit what is Thevenin's Equivalent circuit?

Thanks

Could you neatly sketch the circuit whose Thèvenin equivalent you are required to find? Also label it so there is a clear difference between 2 and Z. What is the symbol of a circle with a central arrow?

Hello
here is neatly sketch and I define the name of each source and the value is "2" (in Volt , Ohm,Amper)

What appears to be a short-circuit across the current source really is a short-circuit across the current source?

The values shown make no sense. There can be no "solution" here.

The arrangement with the addition of vt is feasible and has a solution, as you found.

It's not clear what this is about, though. Are there more details you can provide about the question?

Hello NascentOxygen
Thanks for your explanation.
It is just a circuit course problem and I want to know better the thevenin rule in this question

And do you think that it will help that you have ignored NascentOxygen's questions?

In other words, you have to help us help you, otherwise we cannot.
