AC Circuit The output of an AC generator is sinusoidal and varies with time according to the following equation ε is the instantaneous voltage – ε 0 is the peak or maximum emf. ω is the angular frequency. f is the frequency and T is the period Phasor diagrams are useful vectorial representations T 2 f 2 π π ϖ = = t cos 0 ϖ ε ε =

Resistor Circuits The resistor voltage v R where V R is the peak or maximum voltage. The current through the resistor is where I R = V R / R is the peak current. The potential decreases in the direction of the current. Using Kirchhoff’s loop law 0 v V V V R R source = - = + = ε

Capacitor Circuits a current i c charging a capacitor with capacitance C . the instantaneous capacitor voltage is v c = q/C . When the capacitor is connected across an AC source of emf ε : v c = ε = ε 0 cos ωt. In a more useful form where Vc is the peak or maximum voltage across the capacitor. The current in the cicuit is ( 29 2 t cos CV t sin CV dt dq i C C c π ϖ ϖ ϖ ϖ + = - = =

    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.
