Assuming that all values are known. Now I need to compute \(i_{1}\)
I can caculate \(i_{1}\) easily by using KVL, KCL laws but I wonder why the method that I did don't work.
In this case, I consider current source ideal and therefore it has infinitive resistance. Hence, the combined resistance of \(R_{2}\) and current source is equal to \(R_{2}\). The combined resistance of the circuit will be \( R{1} + R {2}\) and the current \(i_{1} =\dfrac {V} {R_{1}+R_{2}}\). I know this is wrong but I cann't explain it. Hope anyone could help me out.
