Peak current through RLC circuit is,

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1: Given information

We are given that,

Peak voltage is,

Resistance is,

Phase difference is,

Step 2: Simplify

Let inductive reactance is,

And capacitive reactance is,

We know that,

Therefore, Impedance is,

Hence Peak current is,
