A sinusoidal voltage of peak value 283 V and frequency 50 Hz is applied to a series LCR circuit in which R = 3 W, L = 25.48 mH, and C = 796 μF.

Find (a) the impedance of the circuit; (b) the phase difference between the voltage across the source and the current; (c) the power dissipated in the circuit; and (d) the power factor.   In this question for finding P  we use P=I^2 R and Irms=I/root2 but why do we divide 283 by 5?
