Phasor Diagram

  1. Feb 20, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    See Attachment.

    Find the total Current in the following circuit by phasor diagram techniques only. What is the total power dissipated?Do not use complex #'s.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Im not really sure how to start and the notes for this topic arent that great. I have done a few examples involving a series cct and parallel cct, but I havent seen one like this.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    EDIT: Could someone move this into engineering/computer science section?

    So, what is the equivalent phaser resistances for capacitors and inductors? Once you convert your supply to phaser form, and the resistances to phaser form all of the regular circuit techniques can be applied. I am really confused by the "do not use complex numbers" statement. It's like saying, "You must use phasers! Oh, I'm sorry, I meant phasers without complex numbers (?)."
