## Homework Statement

A 0.5hp motor is observed to draw 1000W and 10 A when connected across a 120V, 60 Hz source.

The motor can be modeled as a parallel R-L circuit. Sketch the phasor diagram and find the values for R and L.

---There are more questions to this, but I might be able to do them, so want to start here. I can't understand how to get the answers in the back of the book(both in Ohms).

The answers are 14.4 and 21.7 Ohms.

## Homework Equations

Not sure yet....

## The Attempt at a Solution

My phasor diagram has voltage(E=120V) leading Current(I=10A) by 90 degrees. So, in other words, the voltage arrow points in the + x direction and the I points somewhere down at an angle between 0 and -90 degrees(on a conventional x-y axis).

I can't even get started....so any help to get me started would be great!
