This post is designed to elicit a general explanation, but here is an example of the type of problem that is giving me issues.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

You have a circuit, which is driven by a sinusoidal power source with frequency w. The circuit consists of a inductor with inductance L in parallel with a resistor with resistance R_L. Both of these are in turn in series with another resister with resistance R. How do I determine the RMS current through each of the circuit elements? Thanks in advance.
