Hi

Please have a look on the attachment. Please help me with the query. Thank you.

Since one side of the branch is at ground (zero), the voltage at node A is the same as the voltage across the branch (19<72°V)

i.e. \[V_{AG} = V_{A} - V_{G} = V_{A} - 0 = V_{A}\]

Thank you.

But suppose you don't know the voltage across the branch AG. In the attachment in my previous I stated how I found the voltage across AG by starting at G and then proceeding toward A. I'm just interested to know if it is possible to find the voltage across the branch AG by starting at A and proceeding toward G, the way I did in the attachment. Do you get me? Please let me know if it's possible. Thank you.

Best regards
PG

When you "travel" from G to A, you're basically completing a KVL loop that includes the unknown branch voltage (see the attached image):

So KVL for this loop is: \[-25.4<45^{o} +12<0^{o} +V_{AG} = 0\]

Applying the KVL loop in the opposite direction (A-to-G, clockwise) gives:
\[-12<0^{o} +25.4<45^{o} -V_{AG} = 0\]

The branch voltage is the same either way. You don't need to know the node voltage A (or even G)
