Hi there! I have some problems in this topic...real difficult to me. ^-^(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A 1(miu)F capacitor is connected in series with a coil of R=50(ohm) and L=49mH and an a.c. ammeter. A current of r.m.s. value 0.03A and f=500Hz is passes through the combination. What is the peak p.d. across the combination?

That question is in part c, that means i have solved the peak p.d. across the capacitor(which is=13.5V) and that across the coil(which is=6.8V). well, i know the answer should not be (13.5V+6.8V), but then i dont know how...

please help me.
