I have the following question:
Calculate the current for each battery in the circuit below and state wether it represents a charge or a discharge.
Now I have a basic understanding of mesh currents, I know I have to label each mesh. Now in this circuit I originally thought that there were three meshes. And as i started to try and work it out i'm getting more confused. Mesh 1 Starts at the 8V battery goes through the 12ohm resistor and goes down towards the 6V battery. If this is right I dont know how to write the first equation since every other example i've done has had another resistor there to use as a value.
Mesh 2 is the 6V battery going through the 220ohm resistor and coming back to itself.
Mesh 3 is the 12V batery going through the 220ohm resistor and then through the 47 ohm resisitor and back to itself.
Can someone please put me on the right path. The more i look at it th more confused i'm getting.
