Kirchhoff's loop rule:

$\overline{){\mathbf{\Sigma }}{\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{0}}}$ A. Considering the upper loop:

Applying Kirchhoff's loop rule in L1

$\begin{array}{rcl}\begin{array}{rc}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{1}}\mathbf{3}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{\Omega }& \mathbf{-}\mathbf{10}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{V}\mathbf{+}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{1}}\mathbf{2}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{\Omega }\mathbf{+}\mathbf{\left(}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{1}}\mathbf{-}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{\right)}\mathbf{1}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{\Omega }\mathbf{+}\mathbf{5}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{V}\mathbf{-}\mathbf{\left(}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{-}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{1}}\mathbf{\right)}\mathbf{4}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{\Omega }\end{array}& \mathbf{=}& \mathbf{0}\\ {\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{1}}\mathbf{5}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{\Omega }\mathbf{+}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{1}}\mathbf{1}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{\Omega }\mathbf{-}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{1}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{\Omega }\mathbf{-}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{4}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{\Omega }\mathbf{+}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{1}}\mathbf{4}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{\Omega }\mathbf{-}\mathbf{5}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{V}& \mathbf{=}& \mathbf{0}\\ {\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{1}}\mathbf{10}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{\Omega }\mathbf{-}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{5}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{\Omega }\mathbf{-}\mathbf{5}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{V}& \mathbf{=}& \mathbf{0}\\ {\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{1}}\mathbf{10}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{\Omega }\mathbf{-}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{5}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{\Omega }& \mathbf{=}& \mathbf{5}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{00}\mathbf{V}\end{array}$ ###### Problem Details A.
