(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In an L-R-C series circuit, the rms voltage across the resistor is 32.0 , across the capacitor it is 90.1 and across the inductor it is 51.5 .

What is the rms voltage of the source?

2. Relevant equations

Well there are lots of equations V_rms =V/sqrt(2)

V_R=IR

V_L=IX_L(I[tex]\omega[/tex]L)

V_C=IX_c(I/([tex]\omega[/tex]C)

3. The attempt at a solution

So what i did was convert all the values from rms into their amplitude voltages and summed them. Then took the resultant rms of that answer. This is not correct however.

I was using kirchoffs rules of the sum of voltages around loop =0. Does this principle hold true in this situation?
