The following three impedances are connected in series across a 100-V, 20-kHz supply:

(1) a 12-Ω resistor, (2) a coil of 100 μH inductance and 5-Ω resistance and (3) a 390-nF

capacitor in series with a 15 Ω resistor. Sketch the circuit diagram, impedance diagram and the phasor diagram; take the supply voltage V as the reference phasor.

(a) Calculate the magnitude of the voltage V2 across the second impedance.

(b) Calculate the magnitude of the voltage V3 across the third impedance.

2. The attempt at a solution

Ok, I'm pretty lost here, but this is what I have done so far...

I'm trying to get the current amount flowing in the circuit, so thought I should get a total impedance Z for the circuit.

First resistor = 12 Ohms

For the coil = 5 + 2 * Pi * (20*10^3) * (100*10^-6) = 17.6 Ohms

For the Capacitor = 1 / 2 * Pi * (20*10^3) * (390*10^-9) = 20.4 Ohms

Second resistor = 15 Ohms

Total Z for the circuit = 12+17.6+20.4+15 = 65 Ohms.

That is as far as I have gone so far. Is that the correct way to get total Z?

Next I will find the current by using I = V/Z ?

I guess that would be 1.54 A ?
