Step 1
1 of 2

We know from part a that the inductor absorbs no power of the circuit

We know from part b that the capacitor absorbs no power of the circuit

We know from part c that the Resistor aborbs power all the time

Thus the complete power is absorbed by the Resistor in series RLC circuit with AC generator

Thus the power is not lost in all the components
