Homework Equations



N/A


Consider the circuit given in the attached image, then please answer the following questions:

1. When the current will come out of the current source, will all that current will go through the path with no impedance above, and none of it will go through the capacitor?

2. If the answer to the above question is yes, then will the current flowing through the inductor be exactly the same current (both magnitude and angle) as the current given by the current source?

This circuit is basically a RL circuit and a RC circuit connected in parallel. Im not 100% sure, but i think the best direction to go with this is to look back at the properties of both of those kinds of circuits.
