## Homework Statement

A generator with an rms voltage of 130V is connected in series to a resistor 3.65k[tex]\Omega[/tex] and a capacitor 3.00[tex]\mu[/tex]F.

Using the frequency found in part A (47.5Hz), find the average power consumed by this circuit.

[tex]\phi[/tex] = 17degrees

## Homework Equations

Latex isn't working for me so I'm sorry for the formatting

P

_{avg}= (V

_{rms}/Z)V

_{rms}Cos(17)

Z=((3650

^{2}+(1/(2*pi*47.5Hz*3.00*10

^{-6}Farad))

^{2})

^{(1/2)}

P

_{avg}= (V

_{rms}/Z)V

_{rms}Cos(17)

P

_{avg}= .1111 W

The answer is 4.23 W

I'm just trying to figure out where I went wrong.
