(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

AC voltage source rms voltage of 158. Circuit has Resistance 106 X(L) is 205 and X(C) is 110

At the instant the voltage across the generator is at its maximum value, what is the magnitude of the current in teh circuit?

2. Relevant equations

V=IR, Vmax=ImaxZ

I found Z, Irms

3. The attempt at a solution

voltage across generator is not in phase with the current so it will be less than the max value but I dont know by what factor it will be less
