In a parallel RC circuit, there is 100 mA through the resistive branch and 100 mA through the capacitive branch. The total rms current is

 [A]. 200 mA [B]. 100 mA [C]. 282 mA [D]. 141 mA

 Abhilash said: (Jan 27, 2012) Let,I1=100ma through resistive & I2=100 through capacitive. Therefore, Total I=i1+i2 = 200A RMS value = im/sqrt2 = 200/sqrt2 = 141 mA

 Utkarsh Srmscet said: (Aug 7, 2015) i1 = 100 mA, i2 = 100/_90 deg mA or 100j. So adding it under root (square of 100 + square of 100) = 141.41 mA.

 Bheemangoud Kachanur said: (Jan 16, 2016) Irms = 0.707 im. = 0.707*200. = 141.4.

 Kumar said: (Mar 22, 2016) Irms = 0.707 im. = 0.707*200. = 141.4.

 Babloo said: (May 1, 2016) Thanks for explaining the solution.

 Rajesh said: (Nov 11, 2016) Is 100 mA R.M.S value or Max. value?

 Gauri said: (Jul 22, 2018) Can someone tell me the difference between rms & Max value?

 Dhiraj Kumar Sahu said: (Sep 23, 2019) Irms=Imax/sqrt(2), it is only true if the input current is sinusoidal.
