consider a wire which is subjected to AC supply.now consider a point X anywhere on wire.

now what will be the potential of that point during the positive and negative halfcycle of sinusoidal AC?what will be the direction of current?

thanks

not only you need X, you also need time. then you need the graph of the ac source

What do you think? Why don't you draw a sketch of an AC voltage source driving a resistor divider. Sketch the AC waveforms -- what do they show?

what kind of thing the voltage?

Peak Voltage = RMS Voltage x square root of 2

Only on a sine wave.
