Homework Help: Trouble with the R-L-C series

  1. Dec 6, 2004 #1
    Trouble with the R-L-C series. Please Help!!!!

    I'm having trouble trying to understand this problem.

    The R-L-C series circuit is driven with a AC source with EMF=Vo*sin(wt) where Vo=110.0V and f=60.0 Hz. If R = 20.0 Ohms, L=5.0 * 10^-2 H, and C=50.0uF, find the potential drops across the inductor at to=0 and at a time t1=the first time after to that the EMF reaches a maximum.

    The current moves throught the circuit first through the resistor, then through the capacitor, and finally through the "L" before completely the cicuit.

    I'm not really sure what to do, can anyone help?
