FIG. 1 (see attachment)
Determine the:
(i) apparent power
(ii) reactive power
(iii) the magnitude of the current flowing in the circuit
(iv) the value of the impedance Z and state whether circuit is inductive or capacitive.
2. A 50 kW load operates from a 60 Hz 10 kV rms line with a power factor of 60% lagging. Determine the capacitance that must be placed in parallel with the load to achieve a 90% lagging power factor.
3. A series RLC circuit is connected to a 5 V supply, the frequency of the supply is adjusted to give a maximum current of 11.9 mA at 2.5 kHz. The Q factor is 70. Determine the component values of the circuit.

Question 8 options:
a) One of the first lessons learned from the test marketing campaign was that "IMPACT" was a terrible name for the new car. The mavens, who were the car enthusiasts sought as opinion leaders on the new car, worried about the light weight of the vehicle and the consequences of a crash with a heavier vehicle, therefore, the GM car was renamed the "EV-1," for the corporation's first electric vehicle.

Question 7 options:
a) Auto engineers in General Motors' research and development unit in Detroit created a sleek, powerful auto that operated entirely on battery power. It was called the IMPACT. Due to the limited battery technology at the time, the IMPACT was limited to a range of 100 miles. Then the vehicle had to be plugged into a 220-volt electrical outlet for three or four hours to recharge the batteries.
