Maximum Current in AC Circuit Problem

  • #1

Homework Statement


A 200? resistor is connected in series with an AC generator that produces a peak voltage of 10.0V. What is the peak current through the resistor if the frequency of the source is (a) 100Hz and (b) 100kHz


Homework Equations


V=IR


The Attempt at a Solution


I just plugged in the numbers and I arrive at a value of Imax=0.05A for both part a and part b. Is this correct? I am just uncertain if the question is only trying to lead me astray with the frequency values as they do not seem to play a part in this solution.
