Homework Help: Voltage and current sources; circuit

  1. Aug 29, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    For the circuit, if V2=1000i2 and i2 = 5mA, determine Vs


    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm really stuck here for some reason and have no idea where to start. Any pointers?

    KVL and KCL is in the next chapter, so I think I should be solving without those.

    I think Kirchoff's laws are the way to go here. Perhaps your teacher intended you to read ahead and attempt the problem yourself?
