Chapter 21 Alternating Current Circuits and Electromagnetic Waves Quick Quizzes 1. (a), (c). The average power is proportional to the rms current which is non-zero even though the average current is zero. (a) is only valid for an open circuit, for which . (b) and (d) can never be true because R → ∞ av 0 i = for AC currents. 2. (b). Choices (a) and (c) are incorrect because the unaligned sine curves in Figure 21.9 mean the voltages are out of phase, and so we cannot simply add the maximum (or rms) voltages across the elements. (In other words, R L V V V V C ≠ ∆ + ∆ + ∆ even though .) R L v v v v = ∆ + ∆ + ∆ C 3. (b). Note that this is a DC circuit. However, changing the amount of iron inside the solenoid changes the magnetic field strength in that region and results in a changing magnetic flux through the loops of the solenoid. This changing flux will generate a back

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
