V1 = 20V, R1 = R3 = 10 ohms, R2 = 20 Ohms, Current source = 2Ix. Solving for Ix and I1 using nodal analysis.
I set up the bottom as my reference node, and have node 1 connected to the voltage source and node two connected to the current source. My KCL for node 2 is
(V2V1)/R2  V2/R3 +2Ix
Where V1 and V2 are the voltages of node 1 and 2 respectively, with V1 being set to 20V because of the voltage source. However on Node 1 I've got V1/20 for the downward branch an (V1V2)/20 for the right branch, but with no resistor on the left I'm not sure how to treat the current coming from the voltage source. If I work it through ohms law I end up with infinite current, and that simply doesn't feel right. What am I forgetting to apply?
Thanks in advance.
