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

A series RCL circuit contains a 47.0 resistor, a 2.00 µF capacitor, and a 5.00 mH inductor. When the frequency is 2520 Hz, what is the power factor of the circuit?

2. Relevant equations

cos(angle)=Vr/Vo

Vr=(IrmsR)

Vo=IrmsZ

3. The attempt at a solution

I know power factor is the cos(angle), but i'm having trouble figuring out what this question is actually asking for
