Experiment 8: Mesh Currents and Node Voltage Analysis
Procedure:
1.
Using both the node voltage analysis method and the mesh current analysis, I
ended up with systems of equations that I simply used Matlab to solve.
I got
identical results when I used both methods, I got that iL = 3.23mA and VL =
2.20V.

Unfortunately, I do not have a digital camera to take a picture of my circuit,
but I am saving it for use in lab 9 anyway, so I am not disassembling it.
5.
Measured values:
iL = 3.19mA, and VL = 2.16V
6.
% deviation for iL = .04 / 3.23 * 100 = 1.23%,
% deviation for VL = .04/2.20 * 100 = 1.82%
7.
My calculated results from step 1 were very similar to the lab results, but not
exactly equal.
There was a very small percent deviation for both, but there
was some deviation nonetheless.
The differences can most likely be attributed
to one of a couple things.
I had to truncate my decimals when I was doing my
math, and the loss of some significant digits could be the reason for the slight
