A resistor with a resistance of 500 ohms and a capacitor with with a capacitance of 2 x 10^-6 f are connected in parrallel to an ac generator that supplies an rms voltage of 260 v at an angular frequency of 377 rad /s find the current amplitude in the resistor (Ir)peak.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know I have to convert 377 from rad / s to hz when I do I get 60 hz. From there I am unsure of how to calculate the rest. I know in a traditional series lrc circuit you calculate Z = [(Xl -Xc)^2 + R^2]^.5 but I and with z you can find the i which would be V/Z.
