  1. The impedance is
    Z = 2 pi f L

    where f = 60 Hz and L = 6.55*10^-3 H
    = 2.47 Ohms

    The peak voltage is
    Vmax = Vsqrt2 = 155.6 V

    Current will lag voltage by 90 degrees,
    and the peak current will be
    Vmax/Z = 63.0 Amperes

    The resistance of the coil has been neglected.

  2. Xl = 6.28*60*(6.55*10^-3h) = 2.47 Ohms.
    = Reactance of coil.

    I=V / Xl = 110 / 2.47 = 44.5Amps., rms.

  3. My Imax result is equivalent to Henry's Irms result. The ratio of the two is sqrt2
