**1. Homework Statement**

An RLC circuit has a resonance frequency of 2000/pi hertz. When operating at angular frequency w > w0, reactance of inductance is 12 ohms and reactance of capacitance is 8 ohms. Calculate the values of L and C.

**2. Homework Equations**

XL = wL

XC = 1/wC

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

welll, what i thouht was w = resonance frequency which is 2000/pi hertz... so since XL is given (12) and XC is given (8), then I plugged in the numbers and got this.

2000/pi = 636.6 hz...so, XL/w = L

12/636.6hz = .0188 H = L

and, 1/wXC = C which is 1/(636.6)(8) = .000196F = C

Correct or not? I feel like something is missing!
