i need to know wat the current flow is if an inductor of 500mH is connected in parallel with a 1k resistor across a 110v, 60Hz source whats the current flow
Hi, Solve for the impedance of the inductor, and treat it as a resistor in parallel with the fixed resistor. The values will be RMS volts and amps.
thats the thing i dont know how to solve for impedence ive been trying to look for the formula and cant find it my teacher is whorthless

I assume your looking for the total current in the circuit ... What did you get for XL? Did you read this link? http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_2/chpt_3/2.html on edit ... Can you show your work so far?
This is certainly the most straight forward method of answering this question. From one of the above links from JoeJester, the inductive reactance XL is given by: XL = 2*pi*f*L All of this information is given in you original question. Knowing this and applying simple circuit analysis will yield the answer. If you post up your attempts it will be easier to point you in the right direction. Dave
