Homework Help: 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
    Il=Vl/Xl
    Xl=frequency*L

    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
