Step 1

The superposition theorem for any linear circuit states that the total current or voltage in any part of the circuit equals the algebraic sum of currents or voltages produced by each independent source separately.

Step 2

Consider only 4 V independent source acts on the circuit.

Therefore, the circuit becomes

Now, the voltage across R2 can be calculated using voltage division rule.

The mathematical formula for voltage division rule is

Where vR2 is the voltage across R2 resistance, V is the independent source voltage.

Therefore,

The given value of R1, R2, R3 is

The equivalent resistance of R2 and R3 is

This is the voltage across R2 when only 4 V source is present. help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseRe R2 4V V(R R R 4(R2 || R, ) 2 = ((R|| R)+R R 30 k R2 20 kQ, R, = 10 k 1 1 1 1 1 20x103 10x103 3 20x10 20x103 о 3 R 4(R.g (R+R (20x10 4 3 30x10320x103 3 V 11 www fullscreen
