Homework Help: Electrical Circuit Logic

  1. May 17, 2012 #1
    Trying to study in preparation for an exam, I've been told that I need to consider the circuits a little more. So in this circuit:

    Would the voltage across the resistor be the voltage across V0? Or would it be the voltage across the inductor because the capacitor is keeping the resistor from being parallel to V0?

    It's the voltage across the inductor.

    Thanks! I thought so, just wanted to make sure that I wasn't making it too hard for myself, that tends to be the case unfortunately. Haha

    No. The voltage across the resistor is 16.cos(377t+45°)
    vo(t) is the voltage across the inductor.
