a non -inductive resistor is connected in series with a capacitor of 100micro farads cap. across 200v,50 hz mains .the pot diff across the resistor is 150v .find the value of resistance &the value of current taken from the mains if the resistor were connected in ||
with the capacitor instead of in series.

which formula we should use here
