Parallel a.c circuits

  1. Jun 24, 2009 #1
    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

    Is this homework? I think it is. What effort have you put in to solving the problem? How would you re-write the problem in equation form? What component characteristics do you need to solve for?
