An RL circuit is driven by an AC generator as shown in the figure. XL = L L As 0, so does XL As 0, resistance of circuit R current gets bigger R
For what driving frequency of the generator will the current through the resistor be largest A) large B) Current through R doesn't depend on C) small Physics 212 Lecture 20, Slide 6 Add phasor voltages around the loop. These add like vectors. r VC r C R r r r r = VR + VC + VL
If phasors satisfy Khirchoff's Law, then so will their projections. L r VL r VL r r VR r VR r VC The projections are the actual voltages.
