    I am studying for a Job placement exam I am taking tomorrow and these are the only 3 questions I cannot wrap my head around on the practice exam, can someone please help??

    1.What is the impedance of a series combination of 100 ohms and 10μF with a source of 60 Hz?

    a.100.5
    b.1000
    c.283.61
    d.265.39

    2.If a resistor of 5000 ohms is placed in series with an inductor of 10 henrys on a 120 volt line with 60 hertz, what is the phase angle?

    a.89.9°
    b.37°
    c.28.39°
    d.42°

    3. If the series resistance is 500 ohms and the capacitive reactance is 500 ohms, what is the phase angle?

    a.360
    b.180
    c.90
    d.45

    Try the textbook associated with this website. Volume II above discusses AC circuits wig chapters 3 and 4 discussing the capacitor and inductors circuits you are interested in.
