2 Chapter 4, Problem 43. Find the Thevenin equivalent looking into terminals a - b of the circuit in Fig. 4.110 and solve for i x . The 6 ohm resistor is a load resistance. Figure 4.110 Solution. To find R Th , consider the circuit in Fig. (a). R Th = 10||10 + 5 = 10 ohms To find V Th , consider the circuit in Fig. (b). v b = 2x5 = 10 V, v a = 20/2 = 10 V -v a + V Th + v b = 0, or V Th = v a – v b = 0 volts and i x = 0 A (a) 10 R Th a b 10 5 (b) 10 20V + 2 A 10 V Th + + v a + v b 5 b a
