(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Given a series RLC circuit with a sinusoidal voltage input, find the effective voltage across each element.

Given:

1) If the effective value of the source voltage is 1 V, the effective value of the current is 1 amp.

2) i(t) lags v(t) by 45 degrees

3) L=1H

4) w=2 rads/sec

2. Relevant equations

Veff = [1/T * ∫ v^2(t) dt] ^ (1/2)

Ieff = Im/√2

Veff = Vm/√2

3. The attempt at a solution

Based on the information I know that:

v(t) = Vmsin(2t)

i(t) = Imsin(2t-45)

Not exactly sure where to go from here especially since R and C aren't given, but I'm assuming you don't need these values or can find out based on the information already given.
