### What is the average power consumed by each component per cycle?

The average power consumed by a resistor is $I_{rms}^2 R$, by a capacitor is $I_{rms}^2 X_c$, and by an inductor is $I_{rms}^2 X_l$.

### Express |z| and θ in terms of x and y for the Argand Diagrams.

For a complex number $z = x + yi$, the magnitude |z| is given by $|z| = \/sqrt{x^2 + y^2}$, and the phase angle θ is given by $θ = \/arctan(y/x)$.

### What is the complex generalization of resistance in the context of impedance?

In the context of impedance, the complex generalization of resistance is impedance, denoted by Z [Ω].

### What is the first order differential equation describing the time evolution of UR(t) in a series sinusoidally forced RC circuit?

The first order differential equation describing the time evolution of UR(t) in a series sinusoidally forced RC circuit is $R \frac{dUR}{dt} + UR = V_m \sin(ωt)$.

### What is the expression for sinusoidal voltages and currents using Euler’s formula?

Sinusoidal voltages and currents can be expressed as $V(t) = V_m \cos(ωt + φ)$ and $I(t) = I_m \cos(ωt + φ)$, where $V_m$ and $I_m$ are the maximum voltages and currents, ω is the angular frequency, and φ is the phase angle.

### What is the relationship between the phase shift and the impedance for an inductor?

For an inductor, the phase shift is +90 degrees and the impedance is jωL.

### In a series sinusoidally forced RC circuit, what is the expression for the potential difference across the resistor, UR(t)?

UR(t) = VR * cos(ωt - φ)

### What is the definition of a phasor in the context of electrical circuits?

A phasor is a complex number representing the amplitude and phase of a sinusoidal voltage or current.

### What is the relationship between instantaneous phase and the Argand diagram for a complex number z?

The instantaneous phase θ of z is the angle measured anti-clockwise from the x-axis in the Argand diagram.

### How does the complex impedance of a circuit change when resistors, capacitors, and inductors are connected in parallel?

In parallel, the complex impedances add reciprocally: 1/Z = 1/Z1 + 1/Z2 + 1/Z3 + ...

### What is the relationship between the instantaneous phase and the Argand diagram for a complex number $z$?

The instantaneous phase of a complex number $z$ is represented by the angle $\theta$ measured anti-clockwise from the x-axis in the Argand diagram.

### In a series sinusoidally forced RC circuit, what is the expression for the potential difference across the resistor, $UR(t)$?

The expression for the potential difference across the resistor $UR(t)$ in a series sinusoidally forced RC circuit is obtained by applying Kirchhoff's voltage law (KVL) to establish the 1st order differential equation describing the time evolution of $UR(t)$.

### How does the complex impedance of a circuit change when resistors, capacitors, and inductors are connected in parallel?

When resistors, capacitors, and inductors are connected in parallel, the complex impedances are combined using the reciprocal of the sum of the reciprocals, for resistors and inductors, and directly for capacitors.

### Express $|z|$ and $\theta$ in terms of $x$ and $y$ for the Argand Diagrams.

The magnitude $|z|$ of a complex number $z$ in the Argand diagram can be expressed as $\sqrt{x^2 + y^2}$, and the angle $\theta$ is given by $\arctan\left(\frac{y}{x}\right)$.

### What is the average power consumed by each component per cycle?

The average power consumed by each component per cycle can be calculated using the formula $P_{\text{avg}} = \frac{V_{\text{rms}}^2}{|Z|}$, where $V_{\text{rms}}$ is the root mean square voltage and $|Z|$ is the magnitude of the complex impedance.
