# Q. A series AC circuit containing an inductor (20 mH), a capacitor $(120 \; \mu F)$and a resistor $(60 \Omega)$ is driven by an AC source of 24 V/50 Hz. The energy dissipated in the circuit in 60 s is :

JEE Main JEE Main 2019

Solution:

## $R = 60 \Omega f = 50 Hz , \omega = 2\pi f = 100 \pi$ $x_{C} = \frac{1}{\omega C} = \frac{1}{100 \pi \times120 \times10^{-6}}$ $x_{C} 26.52 \Omega$ $x_{L} =\omega L = 100 \pi \times20 \times10^{-3} = 2 \pi\Omega$ $x_{C} - x_{L} = 20.24 \approx 20$ $z = \sqrt{R^{2} + \left(x_{C} -x_{L}\right)^{2}}$ $z = 20 \sqrt{10} \Omega$ $\cos\phi = \frac{R}{z} = \frac{3}{\sqrt{10} }$ $P_{avg } = VI \cos \phi , I = \frac{v}{z}$ $= \frac{v^{2}}{z} \cos \phi$ $= 8.64$ watt $Q = P.t = 8.64 \times 60 = 5.18 \times 10^2$

## 1. An AC ammeter is used to measure current in a circuit. When a given direct current passes through the circuit, the AC ammeter reads 3 A. When another alternating current passes through the circuit, the AC ammeter reads 4 A. Then the reading of this ammeter, if DC and AC flow through the circuit simultaneously, is
