The current that goes through the 20Ω and 5Ω resistors, is induced by the voltage drop upon them, hence by the voltage source. So, by KCL, the current through the voltage source is: i vs = i cs-V s 5Ω-V s 20Ω =-1-2 5-2 20 =-1 . 5[ A ]. The power is: P = 2 · 1 . 5 = 3[ W ] (b) To ﬁnd the voltage drop on the current source, we use KCL on the loop VS-1Ω-CS. We get, V s + i cs · 1Ω-V cs = 0 ⇒ V cs = 2 + (-1) · 1 = 1[ V ]. So P = 1[ A ] 1...
