Homework Statement



Three series elements have a.c. voltages across them of [tex]25cos(2 \pi 60t + 30') , 15cos(2 \pi 60t + 60') , 30cos(2 \pi 60t -45') [/tex] Volts respectively. The current flowing is [tex]5.2cos(2 \pi 60t + 25')A[/tex]

Using phasor diagram find

a)total voltage
b)phase angle between total voltage and current
c)overall power factor
d)total power and power dissipated by each element


The Attempt at a Solution



I found part a to be [tex]50.5cos(2 \pi 60t + 4.9')[/tex]

and part be, the angle is 20.1 degrees with the current lagging behind.

I found the PF to be 0.94, what about d)power diss....i found the total power to be 123W
