(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In the circuit attached the load impedance ZL comprises a resistor in parallel with a capacitor. Determine the value of the resistor and the capacitor to ensure that the maximum power is received by the load impedance.

3. The attempt at a solution

So,if components in ZL were in series i would say that the series impedance must be equal with the conjugate of ZL take real parts and imaginary parts seperately and easily find the solutions.I think so,so correct me if I am wrong. But now I dont know what to do. I thougt that i could find the current through ZL and then the Voltage so resistor and capacitor would have same voltage across them,but with the current through each of them being different and unknown how I could calculate them?
