Homework Help: Calculating values in a simple, multi-component inductor circuit

  1. Mar 25, 2010 #1
    Hi all, i'm a first time poster here, so this probably seems really audacious, but i have an assignment to do within the next 5 hours which decides whether i fail this year of college, so any help would be hugely appreciated. I'm a first year computer science undergrad in ireland (so it's curretly 3:19am, that's what kind of situation i'm in!) and this assignment is for my semi electrical engineering module. Our lecture has genuinely not shown how to do any of this and many of our class has already accepted having to do repeats because of this assignment.

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The problems are in the attached PDF file under the heading exercises. They look at simple at first but all i can find that relates to it is completely over my head and i barely know where to start.

    2. Relevant equations

    The relevant equations that have been recomended to me are as follows....

    For dealing with inductance

    For dealing with capacitance

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Attempt at a solution? very little :(

    The best i've managed is screwing around with the formulae and breaking down but i barely know what the variables relate to, let alone how to work them out to something useful or trustworthy.

    Any help would be appreciated, all i need is a solid attempt at these questions to pass the coursework and by extension the module. Also, hope i haven't broken any rules with first post.

    Thanks for reading
