i am supposed to find the current going through R1 using superposition ( supposed to assume the internal resistance of both sources to be 0 ohm).
thanks
thanks

no sorry, that should be 2k aswellIs guessing the value of the unknown resistor supposed to be a part of the problem?
just confused about the way current would travel, would it also go through the 2k resistor if we are only examine the source on the rightGreat! Now, can you describe the procedure for doing a superposition calculation? Then the next step is to follow the procedure just described.
Note  You can quote the procedure from your textbook. I'll quote the procedure from the following source:
http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/textbook/directcurrent/chpt10/superpositiontheorem/
Eliminate all but one source of power within a network at a time, using series/parallel analysis to determine voltage drops (and/or currents) within the modified network for each power source separately. Then, once voltage drops and/or currents have been determined for each power source working separately, the values are all “superimposed” on top of each other (added algebraically) to find the actual voltage drops/currents with all sources active. When redrawing the circuit for series/parallel analysis with one source, all other voltage sources are replaced by wires (shorts), and all current sources with open circuits (breaks).
Of course, the current (or some part of it) would go through all the 2K resistors.would it also go through the 2k resistor
