Given a sine wave signal (20V PP) connected to a 10 kilo-Ohm resistor. Calculate the current through the resistor in terms of average, rms, and peak currents. What wattage rating should the resistor have?
The Attempt at a Solution
For peak I'm assuming that since peak voltage means peak current, we would find the peak current by:
Vp=IR where Vp=Vpp/2=20/2=10V
So: Imax=(10V)/(10E3)= 1E-3 A
I don't know how to fine I average though....
Any help would be great!
