## Homework Statement

Hi

Can a kind person please check my solution? This is the question: Demonstrate the total current in an RLC parallel circuit using the following circuit. I can't draw it but the inductive reactance is 20ohms, capacitive reactance is 5ohms and resistor of 10ohms. All are in parallel. The voltage is 5v in series with 20ohms inductive reactance.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

This is my attempted solution:

Resistive Branch: I = E/R = 5/10 = 0.5A

Capacitive Branch : E/Xc = 5/5 = 1A

Inductive Branch = E/XL =5/20 = 0.25A

Resultant current, Ix = 1 - 0.25 = 0.75A

Total current = (I^2R + I^2X)^1/2

= (0.75^2 + 0.5^2)^1/2
