A capacitor is connected in parallel with a RL branch and a source providing a frequency omega=(LC)^(-1/2). What is the power factor, knowing that R=1000 Ohm, omega 2000 rad/s and L=1H?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Its not difficult to find C=0,25 microC and

XL=2000 Ohm

XC=2000 Ohm

but what to do next? How can I calculate Ztot since it's in parallel?
