Unity power factor (capacitance)

  1. I have an assignment question with a variable capacitor in it and it asks what value of capacitance is necessary to provide "unity power factor overall". This wasnt explained in class, does anyone know what it means?

  3. Do you now about real power, reactive power, and apparent power?
