A brief description of the current condition here; I'm in confusion.
The question states that there are 2 unknown components in a circuit and we are to find it using the given data. The voltage, current and frequency are irrelevant for the time being.
I'm more interested in the phase constant which states the current lags by 50 degrees.
Which points out that one of the component is probably an Inductor.
2. The attempt at a solution
I deduced that the circuit is most likely an LR circuit.
Because I thought that a (lagging) current phase constant of 50 degrees would probably never occur within an LC (or LL but nobody in class attempted that) circuit because they would have been parallel and opposite each other when presented in a phasor diagram.
But the lecturer promptly announced the next day (or from what I heard from others because I just arrived from another class) that it is an LC circuit.
This came as a surprise, and it is actually quite the opposite from what I have gathered from doing tutorials.
I would like to have the confusion cleared up before the finals.
Edit: Sorry if I had used the wrong forum. Please relocate as necessary, thanks.
