Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution



I am just lost on these two problems. What I think on the first one is that I have to convert the voltage but from there I am lost. I am guessing I also have to figure the current.

For the second problem, I know that S = P + Q. I am just lost on the other ones.

Thanks for the help.

Well you should know that Z=R+jX and I=V/Z, so find that and convert that into polar/Cartesian form.

For the second part, try drawing out a 'power triangle' and thinking about what each of the three sides represent.
