Thevenin: Two Loop ProblemTo apply Thevenin's Theorem to the solution of the two loop problem, consider the current through resistor R_{2} below. Replacing the network to the left of R_{2} by its Thevenin equivalent simplifies the determination of I_{2} . Note: To avoid dealing with so many short circuits, any resistor with value zero will default to 1 when a voltage is changed. It can be changed back to a zero value if you wish to explore the effects of short circuits. Ohms and amperes are the default units, but if you put in resistor values in kilohms, then the currents will be milliamperes.
