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

A circuit consists of a 215 resistor and a 0.200 H inductor. These two elements are connected in series across a generator that has a frequency of 120 Hz and a voltage of 235 V.

(a) What is the current in the circuit?

(b) Determine the phase angle between the current and the voltage of the generator.

2. Relevant equations

Xl=2(pi)fL

Irms=Vrms/Xl

3. The attempt at a solution

I used the equation to get 150.796 for Xl, then i plugged that into the equation Irms=Vrms/Xl to find current, but that gave me 1.558, which was not the right answer
