It is a dependent current source. Unfortunately, I never did much with dependent sources in class. I believe the dependent current source is controlled by the current through the indepedent source, so it is a CCCS. Current Controlled Current Source.i admit i have no idea what the diamond shaped device is on the right "g sub m". the given value is 0.2 mS, is that milli-Siemens? i assume one power source Is Vs ?!?
One way to tackle this problem is to apply Norton's Theorem. Review the material pointed to by the link or review any information in your textbook on Norton's Theorem.well I tried using current division to do the problem because the dependent current source and two resistors are in parallel. However the dependent source doesn't have a resistance across of it so current division doesn't work. I can't use voltage division because the resistors and dependent source are not in series.
Basically we just covered current division and voltage division in class, but can't see where to use it.
So now I'm stuck
