AC voltage V(t) has an rms value of 220 V. What is the peak value of this voltage?

Question:

AC voltage V(t) has an rms value of 220 V. What is the peak value of this voltage?

Alternating Current:

A type of electric current running in an electric field in such a way that its value is increasing, getting a peak point, and then decreasing to the same magnitude of negative peak value is known as alternating current. It progresses like a sinusoidal wave.
