Final question of my assigment, can anyone help me so I can celebrate!!
I'm struggling on the following question:
Power in an electric circuit is given by: p = iv
Calculate the maximum value of power if:
v = 0.002Sin (100piet)volts
i = 0.6Sin (100piet + pie/4)amps
and calculate the first time the power reaches a maximum value??
I've had a go at calculating maximum power and got the following:
0.6Sin(100piet + pie/4) x 0.02Sin(100piet)
= 0.012Sin(100piet) - Sin(100piet + pie/4)
= 1/2 x 0.012(cos(100piet -(100piet + pie/4))-cos(100piet+(100piet+pie/4))
= 0.006(cos pie/4 - cos(200piet + pie/4)
as smallest possible value is -1 for cos(200piet +pie/4)
: max value of p = 0.006(cos pie/4 +1)
Does this make any sense?
For the second part of the question: First time it reaches maximum power, I need some guidance on this one, I'm not sure where to go with this one?
All help would be greatly appreciated.
