Practice Problem To get the power I need the voltage and current for every element. What if I was going to use KVL, KCL and Ohm’s Law to solve for this? How many unknowns? 1 current for the voltage source. 2 voltages for the current sources. 5 voltages or 5 currents for the resistors. I need 13 equations! C a lc ulate  the  po we r a s s o c ia te d  with e a c h e le m e nt in the  c irc uit be lo w. R3 1 A 2 A R1 R2 R4 R5 2 V + - There has got to be an easier way!
