## More RLC troubles

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Got a nasty surprise after finishing the problem and looking at the solutions to see the resistor disappearing at tax time.

I can't figure out how the resistor disappears, I can only think the people who solved this were looking at a different circuit of sorts.

The voltage source is a short circuit (if it's an ideal voltage source), and it's in parallel with the resistor...
