PRELAB 1. For the circuit in Figure 8-1, use mesh analysis to calculate the mesh currents. Call your

currents IA, 113, and 15. Record these currents (magnitude and direction) in Table 8-2. 2. Having determined all mesh currents, calculate the current through (magnitude & direction)

and the voltage across (magnitude & polarity) for each resistor. Record these values in the

Tables 8-3 and 8-4 respectively. 3. Write and solve node voltage equations for the circuit of Figure 8-1, and then, solve for the

current through (magnitude and direction) and the voltage across (magnitude and polarity) for

each resistor. Record these values in Tables 8-3 and 8-4 respectively. 4. For the circuit of Figure 8-1 use superposition to calculate the current through and voltage

across R2 (the resistor of interest). It is not required to do calculations for any resistor other

than R2. Record the values in Tables 8-3 and 8-4 respectively. 5. Perform a computer simulation of the circuit using PSpice or Multisim, and use the results to

ﬁnd the current through (magnitude and direction) and the voltage across (magnitude and

polarity) for each resistor. Record these values in Tables 8-3 and 8-4. Create a screenshot of

the simulation showing the results, and include it in your prelab. 5V Figure 8-1 Circuit for testing
