b) Can you find the total energy developed in the circuit? Explain.


Solution Preview

I see the current relation : 16 amps + 3 ia = ia which leads to ia = - 8 amps

Which seem to say to me the direction of the current ia given in the circuit is opposite to that indicated by the diagram. If I turn the arrows for ia then things ...
