Can anyone find the answer using Thevenin's theorem?

@Somashekhar.

How you got that 30096? Explain.

The answer must me same irrespective of method we acquire but I did't get answer using mesh analysis.

@Shinghal.

Your working is right but take note that the current through 30 ohms is the sum of the current that emanate from the two cell and not the difference.

Simple apply node analysis and solve it.

((va-12)/49)+(va/24)+((va-6)/80) = 0.

((va-12)(1920)+(va)(3920)+(va-6)(1176))/94080 = 0.

va(7016)-30096 = 0.

va = 30096/7016.

va = 4.28.

Please review previous question. Why nodal equation differs? Can any one explain?

By applying loop analysis at first loop.

15 = 68i'+ 30(i'+i").

15 = 98i'+ 30i".

Now at second loop:

8 = 100i"+30*(i'+i").

8 = 30i'+130i".

After calculation:

i' = 0.145.

i" = 0.028.

So total current in 30 ohm resistance.

i' + i".

0.145 + 0.028.

= 173 mA.

15 = 68i'+ 30(i'+i").

15 = 98i'+ 30i".

Now at second loop:

8 = 100i"+30*(i'+i").

8 = 30i'+130i".

After calculation:

i' = 0.145.

i" = 0.028.

So total current in 30 ohm resistance.

i' + i".

0.145 + 0.028.

= 173 mA.

Apply nodal analysis for the circuit. After getting Va value, we can find current at 30 ohm.res

(15-VA)/68 - (VA-0)/30 - (VA-8)/100 = 0.

VA = 5.169.

R2 = VA/30.

R2 = 5.169/30.

R2 = 173 mA.

(15-VA)/68 - (VA-0)/30 - (VA-8)/100 = 0.

VA = 5.169.

R2 = VA/30.

R2 = 5.169/30.

R2 = 173 mA.

Applying kcl at node A and taking node B as refrence:

(15-va)/68-va/30-(va-8)/100=0

va=5.1689v;

Ir2=va/30=5.1689/30=0.172A=172mA.

(15-va)/68-va/30-(va-8)/100=0

va=5.1689v;

Ir2=va/30=5.1689/30=0.172A=172mA.
