How can I calculate the total resistance of resistors combination between points a and b ?

I have already designed the circuit and added a 1 A current source between a and b. For dependent current source I used component g (voltage dependent current source).

Electrical circuit

Solving node equations I was able to find Rab using Ohm's law . According to my calculations V1 = 1.8282... V and V2 = 5.4545... V .

Rab = Vab / 1 = Vx


My question is how can I find voltage Vab = Vx ?

  • \$\begingroup\$ For your circuit with a 1A current source, the Vx voltage is equal to 5.4545..V \$\endgroup\$

Ignoring the problem pointed out in comments where you didn't correctly capture the schematic,

My question is how can I find voltage Vab = Vx ?

Your b node is connected to ground so its voltage (as reported by SPICE) is always 0.

Therefore what you call \$V_{ab}\$ is what SPICE calls V(a), which is reported in the screen image you provided.
