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

A light bulb has a resistance of 212 . It is connected to a standard wall socket (120 V, 60.0 Hz). (a) Determine the current in the bulb. (b) Determine the current in the bulb after a 13.2-μF capacitor is added in series in the circuit.

2. Relevant equations

R, V, f are given. I don't know how to start incorporate these figures without a value for Z. Am I forgetting a another important equation?

3. The attempt at a solution

I used the equations:

X(sub L)=2pifL

Irms=Vrms/Z
