Ohm's Law: v = iR
KVL: ∑ V = 0
KCL: ∑ I = 0
Linearity: kiR = kv
The Attempt at a Solution
Okay, so to apply superposition, I'm supposed to turn off all independent sources except one. I began by turning off the voltage source, and I then I used KCL to attempt to find the voltage through the resistor with current I flowing through it. I named the resistor that is in series with the voltage source R1, and the resistor in parallel with the current source R2.
Is = (R1/(R1 + R2))Is + I
Then I tried to find the voltage attributed to the circuit by the current source:
v = ((R1/(R1 + R2))Is )R2
Then I turned off the current source, leaving an open circuit and tried to solve for the current from the voltage source:
vs = i(R1 + R2)
After this, I have tried plugging in the numbers given in the problem to find values for R1 and R2, but this didn't work out very well. I don't think I'm setting up or thinking about the problem correctly. Where have I gone wrong?
