# Q7.19  Suppose the circuit in Exercise 7.18 has a resistance of $15\Omega$. Obtain the average power transferred to each element of the circuit, and the total power absorbed.

P Pankaj Sanodiya

The inductance of the inductor $L=80mH=80*10^3H$

The capacitance of the capacitor $C=60\mu F$

The resistance of a $15\Omega$resistor

Voltage supply $V = 230V$

Frequency of voltage supply $f=50Hz$

As we know,

Impedance

$Z=\sqrt{R^2+\left ( wL-\frac{1}{wC} \right )^2}$

$Z=\sqrt{15^2+\left ( 2\pi*50*80*10^{-3}-\frac{1}{2\pi 50*60*10^{-6}} \right )^2}=31.728$

Current flowing in the circuit :

$I=\frac{V}{Z}=\frac{230}{31.72}=7.25A$

Now,

Average power transferred to the resistor:

$P_{resistor}=I^2R=(7.25)^2*15=788.44W$

Average power transferred to the inductor = 0

Average power transferred to the capacitor = 0:

Total power absorbed by circuit :

$P_{resistor}+p_{inductor}+P_{capacitor}=788.44+0+0=788.44W$

Hence circuit absorbs 788.44W.
