U = 180•sin (70πt).
Umax = 180 V
f=ω/2π=70π/2π =35 Hz,
rms U=Umax/√2= =0.707•Umax=0.707•180=127.3 V
U/R = (180/R)•sin (70πt)
I=(180/13) •sin (70πt)=13.85•sin (70πt)
Imax =13.85 A
rmsI= Imax/√2=0.707•Imax=
=0.707•13.85=9.8 A
Pmax=Imax•Umax=180•13.85=2493 W
P=I•U= 127.3•9.8 =1244.6W
I=13.85•sin (70πt)=
=13.85•si(70π •0.005)=
=13.85•0.89 =12.34 A
