Inductor Currents

  1. Mar 23, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    An inductor is connected to a 15 kHz oscillator. The peak current is 65 mA when the rms voltage is 6.0 V. What is the value of the inductance L? In mH

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Well I thought this problem was really straight forward just convert everything to similar units and plug in but I keep getting .979 mH and it says that answer is wrong so was hoping someone could help me out here.

    No need to help me on this problem I figured it out I didn't notice the rms on the voltage so I forgot to multiply by square root of 2
