Series R-L-C AC circuits Most complex we will consider ∆V = ∆Vgenerator Fig. 21-8, p.699 Voltage across each element still obeys Ohm-like law: ∆VR ,max = I max R ∆VL ,max = I max X L = ∆VC ,max = I max X C = What is the same for all three elements? But their voltage peaks (maximums) occur VL and VC are always VR is always _________ period shifted from VL and VC Phase difference between I and V Impedance Z is reactance of L, R C together Z= R 2 2 + (X L − X C ) X L − XC R φ = tan −1 ∆Vgenerator ,max = Average power delivered to circuit Speaker impedance matching Fig. 21-8, p.699 Where does it go? 4Ω 8Ω 30−60Ω Pav = I rms ∆Vgenerator ,rms cos φ = = I rmsVR ,rms = I rms R = 2 Power needed for headphones?
