Homework Help: Averag power of an RLC circuit

  1. May 2, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    4.) Determine the average power in an RLC circuit. Derive an expression for the resonance frequency in terms of L and C. Is the average power a maximum or a minimum at the resonance frequency?

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have circled in red the part that is giving me trouble, all the rest of the solution i can do, is that part some identity or rule i am missing?
