# Change in Capacitor for largest possible Current

## Homework Statement

The capacitor is changed so that the largest possible current is supplied by the source.
Enter the value of the capacitive reactance when this change is made.

## Homework Equations

The circuit is powered by an alternating voltage source, which produces a voltage that varies sinusoidally and has an RMS voltage of V.

- The frequency of the voltage source is 49.1 Hz and the inductor has an inductance of 55.9 mH.
Calculate the inductive reactance (XL) of the inductor.

- The capacitor has a capacitance of 2.55 mF.
Calculate the capacitive reactance (XC) of the capacitor. The frequency is still 49.1 Hz.

- The resistor has a resistance of 21.1 Ω.
Calculate the impedance (Z) of the RLC network.

Im not sure what this question is asking me or what equation to use to calculate it either.
