Operation of circuit elements.
this is done, current will flow through resistor R1 in the first path.
resistor offers the same opposition to ac as to dc, the current flowing in this
path will be the same regardless of whether ac or dc is applied to the circuit. In
the second path, the impedance will be high, due principally to the very high
reactance of the capacitor. Very little current will flow in this path, so most of
the applied voltage will appear across the capacitor, and a small voltage across
The impedance of the third path will be low because of the low
reactance of the coil at low frequencies.
The current in this branch will,
therefore, be quite large. The voltage across the resistor will be large because
of the high current, and the voltage across the coil will be small because of the
