# An RLC Circuit

Not what you're looking for?

Question: A series RLC circuit has components with the following values: R = 50.0 Ohms, L= 200.0mH, and C = 10,0 uF. The circuit contains an emf source e(t) = (200V) sin [500 (rad/s) t].

(a) Compute the impedance and phase angle for this circuit.

(b) Find an expression for the current i(t) in the circuit.

(c) Evaluate the potential drop across each circuit element at t = 0.7s and verify that their sum totals to e(t) at this same time.

R = 50 ohm

L = 200 mH == 0.2 H

C = 10 muF = 10*10^(-6) F

e(t) = 200 sin(500t)

hence, omega (w) = 500

Vo = 200 V

a. Impedence

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

X_L = w*L = 500*0.2 = 100 ohm

X_C = 1/(w*C) = 1/(500*10*10^(-6)) ...

- " In question 2, you incorrectly add in the $3.00 dividend that was just paid to determine the value of the stock price using the dividend discount model. In question 4 response, it should have also been recognized that dividend discount models are not useful if any of the parameters used in the model are inaccurate. "
