After the requested values were found, the NV method was applied to the circuit to calculate
what voltages should be found at v2 and v3. As can be seen by inspection, the v1 voltage is equal
to Vs1 and the v4 voltage is equal to Vs2. Once that was finished, the MC method was applied
to calculate the currents i1, i2, and i3. These calculated values of voltages and currents along
with the theoretical values can be seen in tables 4 and 5 in appendix A. From these calculated
and theoretical values, the voltages dropped across R2 and R4 and the branch currents through
the resistors could be obtained. With these values, the power dissipated by the resistors could be
calculated. The power values can be seen in tables 6 and 7 in appendix A.
As shown in tables 6 and 7, there is a smaller percent error for the power dissipated from
R2 than R4. A few reasons for the change in percent error were due to the fact that the 8.2kΩ
resistor had a measured value that was 4.77 percent higher than the labeled rating. Also it was
