##### How do I calculate the corresponding magnitude V?
« on: 17/10/2005 14:22:20 »
I am having problem in doing a practice question as shown below to prepare for my final examination. Could experts here kindly give me some guide to solve this question? Thank you.

In the series-parallel AC circuit shown in Figure below, the voltage V2 is measured as 50V, how to calculate the corresponding magnitude of V1 and Vin?

Not to lecture, but, this is your education, and the usual protocol is for the student to post his best shot at an answer. Then the "experts" can help you over the rough spots. That way, we are reasonably sure you aren't just thrying to con us into doing your homework.

However, I do have one question about the circuit you posted: Are V1 and V2 voltage sources, or are they supposed to represent "voltmeters" ?

"F = ma, E = mc^2, and you can't push a string."
