20.

A 2 k resistor is in series with a 0.015 F capacitor across a 15 kHz ac source. What is the magnitude of the total impedance and the phase angle?

 A. 73.4 and θ = –19.5° B. 707 and θ = –19.5° C. 2121 and θ = –19.5° D. 734 and θ = –38.9°

Explanation:

Xc = 1/2πfC = 707 Ω

Z = R - jXc = 2000 - j(707)

|z| = sqrt(R*R + Xc*Xc) = 2121 Ω

Phase angle = arctangent(Xc/R) = 19.5°
