## Homework Statement

An RLC circuits consists of R1 a 10-ohm resistor, R2 a resistor that takes 50 W, C1 a capacitor with 5-ohm reactance, and L1 an inductor that takes 100 var. Find the value of R1, R2, and Xl (inductive reactance).

## Homework Equations

P = (I^2)R

Xc = 1/(2∏fC)

Xl = 2∏fL

Z = √(R^2 + XeqL^2)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried equating the currents but I don't know what to do next. I tried to solve for the equivalent impedance but without the frequency of the source, my efforts were futile. Perhaps I could assume a frequency of 60 Hz?
