Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points In an LR circuit, a 102 V( rms ), 38 Hz source is in series with a 15 mH inductor and a 22 resistor. What is the maximum rms current? Correct answer: 4 . 57612 A. Explanation: Let : f = 38 Hz , L = 0 . 015 H , R = 22 , and V rms = 102 V . The inductive reactance is X L = L = 2 f L = 2 (38 Hz) (0 . 015 H) = 3 . 58142 . The impedance of an RL circuit is the same as that of an RLC circuit, but without the capacitive reactance. Namely Z = radicalBig R 2 + X 2 L = radicalBig (22 ) 2 + (3 . 58142 ) 2 = 22 . 2896 . The rms current is I rms = V rms Z = 102 V 22 . 2896 = 4 . 57612 A . 002 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points What is the power factor? Correct answer: 0 . 987007. Explanation: The phase angle in an RL circuit is the same as that of an RLC circuit, but without the capacitive reactance. Namelythe capacitive reactance....
