 AC voltage Part 2: root-mean-square (RMS) value explained in Python

In the second video of the AC power series the basic mathematics behind calculating the root-mean-squared (RMS) value is being explained step-by-step. Furthermore, the process is also shown in form of a Python 3 code run inside a Jupyter notebook. First we describe the general formula for a sinusoidal function, and this is being implemented for 230V AC voltage, having a value of the peak amplitude of about 325V.

For simplicity the code does not contain Numpy arrays, vectorized operations,…

but one request you should do more practical things than theory lessons

I like how you went "full Heisenberg" on that equation.
