## Homework Statement

http://imageshack.us/a/img26/8403/homeworkprobsg28.jpg [Broken]

a. Use source transformations to find the voltage V

_{0}in the circuit (green).

b. Find the power developed by the 250V voltage source

c. Find the power developed by the 8A current source

## Homework Equations

V = IR

KVL, KCL,

voltage division: v = (R / total series r)(v in)

current division: i = (other resistance / math. sum of parallel r)(i in)

P = IV

P = (I^2)(R)

source transformation:

current to voltage, resistor moves up but value stays the same, and voltage replacing current source = (coefficient of resistor)*(coefficient of current source)

switch between

a current source in parallel with a resistor or

a voltage source in series with a resistor

## The Attempt at a Solution

I think I sort of get the basic idea behind source transformation, but it seems more complicated for this problem. The voltage source is not in series with a resistor and vice versa for the current source.

I think I can / am supposed to do source transformation with the 8A and 125Ω to get this:

not sure if the 125Ω is supposed to be on the bottom though. Any tips?
