12th Calculus

posted by .

suppose that at any tiem t(sec) the current i(amp) in an alternating current circuit is i=2cost+2sint. What is the peak (largest magnitude) current for this circuit?

  • 12th Calculus -

    d(i)/dt = -2sint + 2cost
    = 0 for a max of i
    solving this we get sint = cost
    divide by cost
    sint/cost = 1
    tant = 1
    t = pi/4 sec

    then i = 2cos(pi/4) + 2sin(pi/4)
    = √2 + √2
    = 2√2 amps
