Problem 2.17 has a solution for the voltage at point C posted in the appendix as 225v. 225v across a 50 ohm resistor yields 4.5A. Without solving the problem, isn't this intuitively incorrect because 4.5A is greater than the single 2A current source? My solution to the problem yields 50v at point C. Perhaps I'm missing something here.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hold on! I used figure 2.96 rather than 2.97, as stated in the problem. That's my problem.
