RLC circuit problem

  1. Dec 13, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A coil of inductance 0.20 H, resistance 60ohms is connected in parallel with a 20 µ F capacitor across a 20 V, variable frequency supply


    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I have done a RLC circuit diagram for the problem above but I am not quite sure is it correct?

    From the description in the problem above I understand that we have L and R in series, both connected in parallel with C?

    Or R,L and C are connected in parallel?

    How do you understand problem above?

    The resistance is associated with the resistivity of the wire comprising the inductor, so the series connection of the coil and resistance is a reasonable "bulk model" of the situation. Your diagram looks fine.
