Two other meth ods generally are simpler to use.The first is useful if thc netlvork contains only indepcndent sourccs. To calculato nft for such a nerwork, wc first deactivatc all independcnl sources and theD calculate the resistance seen looking inlo lhe network allhe designared rerminat pair.A voltagc source is deactivaled by replacing it $'ith a shorl c cuit. A curent source is deac- tivated by replacing it wirh an open circuil. Fof example, consider rhe cir, cuit shown in Fig. 4.52. Deactivating the independcnl sources simplifies the circuit to the one shown in Fig- 4.53. The resisrance seen looking
