## Homework Statement

[Broken]

For the circuit shown, what value of Z

_{L}results in maximum average power transfer to Z

_{L}? What is the maximum power in milliwatts?

## Homework Equations

P max = (V

_{Th})

^{2}/4R

_{L}

Thevenin, Norton procedures, voltage division, current division, etc etc

## The Attempt at a Solution

This is the exact question; kind of confusing if it means find Z

_{L}through the inductor or Z

_{L}through the load. But I assume it means find the total impedance through the load which includes R

_{L}and the capacitor.

Really not sure how I would start for this though, so assuming it's the formula above I need to use, then I guess find the Thevenin Resistance here, and even more so for V

_{Th}.

Assuming finding RTh is the same way too (ie, if I'm supposed to find the resistance from A to B with the V source shorted and the load cut out),

then would RTh be (3000 + 4000jΩ)? (Or ZTh because it's impedance?). Not sure about what VTh might be either though.

Any tips on where to start here would be helpful, thanks.
