## Homework Statement

An AC generator in an LRC circuit produces a voltage V(t) = 1.414sin(wt) = 1.414sin(1000t)

The values of inductance, capacitance, and resistance are shown in the diagram. Recall the w = 2pi*f.

i made a picture of the diagram:

a) What is the rms voltage supplied by the generator?

b) What is the maximum current in the circuit?

c)What is the phase difference between the AC generator and the current flowing in the current?

(I made w = omega)

## Homework Equations

Vrms = Vpeak/ sqrt(2)

## The Attempt at a Solution

im doing practice final and i don't have the answers

i just want to run them by some people just in case i got the thinking wrong

so for,

a) Since V(t) = Vpeak *sin(wt), Vpeak = 1.414, so then Vrms = 1.414/sqrt(2) =~ 1V, right?

b) This is one i'm mostly confused on. I'm not sure how to go about this, but i'm leaning toward the power equation except there is no power value here. This is assuming ipeak is what it's asking for....so...:(

c) I remember that RLC circuits are usually conductive, so the phase would be around 90, with the current leading, right?

and that's what i have so far
