Homework Statement
In the circuit diagram shown , Xc = 100 ohm , XL = 200 ohm , R = 100 ohm , the effective current through the source is ?
Homework Equations
Z= √( R^2 + ( XL  Xc)^2)
Vrms = Irms/ Z
The Attempt at a Solution
I tried to draw the phaser diagram and calculate the relation between the current in the LC branch and current in R branch( the phaser diagram is given as attachment)
From it I concluded that Inet = √( (I1)^2 + (I2)^2)
Where I1 = current through R branch
I2 = current through LC branch
And I got ans= 2√2 which is correct
1.What I am confused is that was my answer just by chance
2.And is it even possible to draw phaser diagrams when in parallel.. if yes, then is my attempt correct ?
3.If not , how else can we solve it .. or is there any easier method to solve it?
