Homework Help: Calculating current in a circuit

  1. Apr 16, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Calculate the current I.



    2. Relevant equations

    V=IR



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I calculated the effective resistance to be 170/13 Ohm, and using V=IR, the current I is 0.31A. Am I doing it right? Does the capacitor contribute to the resistance of the circuit? What is the capacitor's significance in this circuit in calculating current?
