    Hi everyone,
    I'm really terrible at RLC circuits etc, these are two problems I'm having trouble with. I have attached schematics of them.

    The first circuit, it says use thevenins theorem, determine the I in the 15
    Ω resistor and the voltage Vab of the AC circuit. I know I am meant to use a delta star transformation to determine the thevenin impedance, but I just don't know where to start!

    The second circuit says to use norotns theorem to determine the current in the 15
    Ω resistor of the AC circuit. Again I don't know why but when it comes to using capacitors and angles etc in circuits, i get confused!

    Please someone help, a step by step guide to solving these circuits?

    I thought classes WERE step-by-step guides to solving these problems?

    Oh, school kids.

    Where are you having the trouble?

    What have you done so far?
