Hi:
I need to use mesh analysis to find iA, iB and iC on the attached image. Please tell me whether my approach is correct.
I decided that:
Loop1, on the left is anticlockwise (iA)
Loop 2 is clockwise (iB)
Mesh1 gave: 21+10iA+6iB=0
Mesh2 gave: 6iA18iB+28=0
after solving I got:
iA=1.4583 Amps
iB=1.0694 Amps
But I'm confused about iC and the directions of the currents on the diagram.
How do I find iC and why are the directions of currents going in a nonsenical direction?
Please advise.
Thank you
