1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations
V=IR
H(w) = Y/F = Impedance of circuit

3. The attempt at a solution

I wanted to simplify this circuit before I find any impedance, but I am not sure if I did my source transformation correctly. Can i combine the f(t) current source with the 1ohm in parallel even though there is another resistor in series with it? Or are my steps correct?

A resistor (or any passive component) in series with a current source has no effect outside of altering the potential differences on components within the current source branch. The branch will still deliver the current source's specified current with or without series resistance in the way; the current source will just alter its own potential difference to compensate and maintain the current.

What this means is that you can remove that series resistor entirely without making any change to the way the rest of the circuit operates.

So do I just ignore that resistor from the start or do I have to include it like I did in my source transformation?

Remove it. Erase it. Obliterate it. Pretend it never exited

Lol.. Thanks!

rude man

How did your second 1 ohm reisstor wind up in series with the L-C network?
