Hi, I have just been refreshing my theory and was going over a parallel RL circuit, like this one.
The site I was reading had this for the total current
I tried some values as a test but it doesn't give me the correct answer, for total current. eg if I set
V=10V
R=2.5ohm
jXl=5ohm
Then I_{R}=10/2.5 =4A
I_{L}=10/5=2A
I_{T}=√4^{2} +2^{2} =4.47A
However when I try the formula from the second answer I get 10/(2.52j) which following the maths gives me 2.44+1.95j=3.12A
Am I going wrong somewhere or is it the formula?
Thanks
