I have expanded v to give me (207.84sin 100 pi t-120 cos 100 pi t)
and expanded i to give me (15 cos 100 pi t - 25.98 sin 100 pi t)
multiply v x i gives me
3117.6 sin 100 pi t cos 100 pi t - 5399.68sinē 100 pi t - 1800 cosē 100 pi t + 3117.6 cos 100 pi t sin 100 pi t
not too sure if I have my + and - in correct places after I have multiplied and i'm stuck after that about how to get my max power and time answers ??
any help would be greatful its quite a big question
