I'm back again with a nodal analysis question. I'm getting better, but I've come to a problem again.
Consider the following circuit with the bottom node as ground:
I specifically don't know how to deal with the two lower left branches. When I apply KVL I get equations of the form v1 = v1 and v2 = v2, which is not helpful. One of them is also a dependent source, so I can't just use source transformations as far as I know.
I know that this problem ought to be a lot easier with mesh current analysis. Unfortunately, I'm doing this problem for educational purposes and we're expected to be able to solve this problem with nodal analysis too.
Thanks in advance again, Joshua
