2 Notes About rms Values • rms values are used when discussing alternating currents and voltages because – AC ammeters and voltmeters are designed to read rms values – Many of the equations that will be used have the same form as their DC counterparts Which of the following statements might be true for a resistor connected to a sinusoidal AC source? 25% 25% 25% 25% 1. 2. 1234 3. 4. 0 of 126 Inductors in an AC Circuit • Kirchhoff’s loop rule can be applied and gives: 0 o r 0 max , sin L vv di vL dt di V ω t dt Δ+Δ = Δ− = Δ= Current in an Inductor • The equation obtained from Kirchhoff's loop rule can be solved for the current max sin max cos VV i ω td t ω t Δ Δ = =−
