Solving Problems Since the first exam, we have introduced two systematic techniques: Node Voltage Analysis allows you to assign voltage values to each essential node once a reference node is defined. Mesh Current Analysis allows you to assign current values to all mesh currents in the circuit. Now that we have these two tools which one should I use?

Which method do you pick? How many equations do you need to solve? – Pick the method that has fewer equations. What is asked? – If voltage is the unknown quantity use nodal analysis, if current is the unknown use mesh current.
