1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The problem says. Shown are two circuits. In one circuit, a light bulb is connected directly to an AC source. In the second circuit, an identical light bulb is connected in series with an inductor and a capacitor to an identical AC source. a- is it possible for the bulb in the second circuit to be as bright as the bulb in the first circuit? explain. b- is it possible for the bulb in the second circuit to be brighter than the bulb in the first circuit? explain. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I know that the light bulbs can act as a resistor, but in the second circuit, does the capacitor over a certain amount of time not make the bulb as bright? In AC circuits the inductors, resistors and capacitors all act differently than in DC circuits but how does that effect the brightness?
