i have just started a distance learning hnd electronics course through a learning provider. i have to complete some coursework using microcap simulator. i have never used this simulator before and haven't looked at electronics for about a year. i have started studying again and some of it is coming back to me. i have a question which i have completed and would like some one to possibly check it for me, not do it for me but maybe point out where i went wrong. before this though, i am having a problem with micro cap.

i have tried looking at the manual but i think it would be better to get an answer to this question first. the circuit is a series RLC circuit. i have to use complex notation to find the answers, converting to polar form and so on. when the answers are found i have to make a simulation to prove it. i have a sine source component that has the values. Vs = 10sin(2000t). i dont know how to set the sine source to this value. i am happy to research it but i am having trouble finding out what it is. sin would suggest something to do with trigonometry. this probably sounds daft to you but i have havent looked at this stuff for some time and im drawing a blank.

the answers that i got for the above questions are:

a/ z = 485.41 < -87.639(degrees) //the carrot (<) is supposed to be that funny looking side ways V

b/ 20.6mA < 87.639(degrees)

c/ Vr = 0.412v < 87.639(degrees)

Vl = 0.309v < 177.639(degrees)

Vc = 9.991v < 2.361(degrees)

d/ 918.881Hz

e/ 4.33

f/ 212Hz

not sure if any of this is correct, been a while like i say.

any advice would be great!!!

many thanks

Simon
