## Circuit Containing Only Sources

We go through solving a circuit which only containes independent sources: two voltage sources and two current sources. KVL and KCL are used to determine voltages and currents.

## Problem 1-15: Power of Independent Sources

Determining power of independent voltage and current sources. Passive sign and active sign conventions are used to find out which source is supplyingpower and which one is absorbing.

## Problem 1-14: Current of A Voltage Source

Two simple circuits are used to demonstrate the characteristic of voltage and current sources. In both cases, the voltage sources are in series with current sources.
