## Question 1

So, we are given several values: V_m, f and R. We want to eventually find I_rms.

First, we need to find v_rms:

V_rms = V_m / (sqrt(2))

Then, let's find the average power by using this equation and the value of V_rms we just calculated:

P = (V_rms/R) * V_rms

Now, we can use this equation to find I_rms, which is our answer:

P = I_rms * V_rms

I_rms is the answer, and it is negative.

## Question 2

There's a bunch of steps to this question as well.

So, we are given several values: V_rms, f, R, X_C (capacitor reactance), and X_L (inductive reactance). We are trying to find I_m.

First, let's find the value of Z by using this equation:

Z = sqrt(R^2 + (X_L - X_C)^2)

Then, let's find the value of V_m, which we will need in the end:

V_rms = V_m / (sqrt(2))

Finally, use this equation to find I_m, which is our answer:

V_m = I_m * Z

I_m is the answer, and it is positive.

## Question 3

We are given the following values: V_rms, f, R, X_C, and X_L. We are looking for P average.

First, use this equation like above to find Z:

Z = sqrt(R^2 + (X_L - X_C)^2)

Then, find I_rms using this equation:

I_rms = V_rms / Z

Finally, use this equation to find Z, which is the answer:

P = I_rms^2 * R

P is the answer (average P) and it is negative.

## Re: Maple TA Quiz 20-3

#1 above isn't working out for me. can u tell me wuts wrong with it plz?

## Re: Maple TA Quiz 20-3

forget it i figured it out. i was converting the resistance wrong.

## Question 1

hey..i really dont understand what you did in question one...and wat about th frequency????

## RE: Question 1

I intuitively solved the question in that manner. MapleTA says it's the correct answer.

There must be another method which utilizes the frequency value.

Any ideas on #4?

## #4

1= 4*pi^2*f^2*C*L

Just solve for f.

## RE: Question 4

I'm still unable to calculate the correct answer. Do we just ignore the given values of R and V_rms?

## number 4

use f=1/(2pi*sqrt(LC))

## question #1

i have trouble doing #1, do we have to convert anything in Question #1, and if we do what do we have to convert. i tried converting kilo ohms to ohms by multiplying by 0.001 but my answer is incorrect...pls help.

## Question #1

forget it ...i got it..

## question 4

Question 4
First we need to rearrange the formula previously given to solve for f:
1= 4*(pi^2)*(f^2)*C*L -->
f= sqrt(1/(4*(pi^2)*C*L))

My values were:
C= 122.89 microF (convert to F by multiplying times 10^-6)
L= 51.59 microH (convert to H by multiplying times 10^-6)

Solution:
f=sqrt(1/(4*(pi^2)*(122.89E-6)*(51.59E-6))
f= 1998.84

The other values are given so we can answer the positive/negative question, just ignore them.
Hope this helps!

## probs 1 2 3

i'm still having a problem with questions 1, 2, and 3
why are we not using the frequencies in any of the three questions?
also, can someone put up actual numbers cause idk what i'm doing wrong but i triple checked my calculations and i'm getting the same incorrect numbers...

## Re: Maple TA Quiz 20-3

For #1 I just found the Peak current and divided by sqrt(2)

The power supply in an AC circuit with a 9.464 resistor delivers a peak voltage of 280 V at a frequency of 35.43 Hz. What is the rms current (see sheet 16)? Indicate with a positive (negative) sign whether the resistance depends (does not depend) on the frequency.

280 / 9464 = .029586
.029586 * (1/sqrt(2)) = .0292

## Question 2 and 3

2) The AC voltage source in an RLC circuit delivers 100 V rms voltage at a frequency of 250 s-1. The resistance of the resistor is 53.42 , the capacitive reactance is 41.17 and the inductive reactance is 136.1. What is the peak current (see sheet 27,31)? Indicate with a positive (negative) sign whether the minimum impedance at any frequency is equal to (larger than) the resistance of the resistor.

V_rms= 100
Frequency= 150 s^-1
Resistance of resistor (R)= 53.42 ohms
Capacitive reactance (X_C)= 41.17 ohms
Inductive reactance (X_L)= 136.1 ohms

First use this formula: to find Z:
Z = sqrt(R^2 + (X_L - X_C)^2)

Z= sqrt(53.42^2 + (136.1-41.17)^2)= 108.9284228

Then use this formula V_m= V_rms*sqrt(2)
V_m= 100*sqrt(2)= 141.4213562

Then finally use this formula: to find I_m:
I_m= V_m/Z

so then:

3) The AC voltage source in a series RLC circuit delivers 148 V rms voltage at a frequency of 60 Hz. The resistance in the circuit is 86.23 , the capacitive reactance is 65 and the inductive reactance is 10.41 . What is the average power dissipated in the circuit (see sheet 36) ? Indicate with a positive (negative) sign whether the capacitor and the inductance (do not) dissipate power.

V_rms= 148
frequency= 60Hz
Resistance (R)= 86.23 ohms
Capacitive Reactance (X_c)= 65 ohms
Inductive Reactance (X_L)= 10.41 ohms

First use this formula: to find Z

Z = sqrt(R^2 + (X_L - X_C)^2)

Now plug the numbers in:
Z= sqrt(86.23^2 + (10.41-65)^2)= 102.0572437

Then use this formula: to find I_rms:
I_rms = V_rms / Z

Now plug in numbers:
I_rms= 148/102.0572437= 1.45016654

Finally use this formula: to find P:
P= I_rms^2*R

Plug in numbers:
P= (1.45016654)^2*86.23= 181.3402235 (MAKE SURE ANSWER IS IN NEGATIVE)
