Find the power factor for an RC circuit connected to a 70Hz generator with an rms voltage of 125V. The values of R and C in this circuit are 105ohms and 82.4microfarads, respectively.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The equation I think you use is P=IVcos[tex]\oslash[/tex] and also z= square root of R^2+(1/wc)^2 and cos0 = R/Z

I tried to put it together but nothing seemed to come out right, I couldn't figure out how to relate everything so that i could solve for the power factor. A push in the right direction would be nice. Thanks
