# An alternating current is given byi = i1 cos ωt + i2 sin ωt.The rms current is given byA. B. C. D. The rms value of current is given by … (i), where

i = current = i1 cos ωt + i2 sin ωt …. (ii)(given), t = time, ω = angular frequency, T = time period.

Now, squaring on both sides of (ii), we get

i2 = i12cos2ωt + 2i1i2sinωtcosωt + i22sin2ωt … (iii) = ow, … (v), where ω = angular frequency, T = time period = 2π/ω

Therefore, (iv) becomes:

=> [since sin nπ = 0, cos 0 = cos 2nπ = 1]

Hence, rms value of current i is (Ans)
