Find the Thévenin equivalent circuit with respect to the capacitor.


Find the Thévenin equivalent circuit with respect to the capacitor. You must use superposition to find Vth.



Find the Norton Equivalent with respect to the 3 Kohm resistor in the middle of the circuit, i.e., the 3 Kohm resistor itself should not be part of the equivalent that you compute.

Find the Thévenin equivalent with respect to the 1nF capacitor. You must use super-position to find Vth, the Thévenin voltage.
