    Lets say if i got RC series circuit.

    So my resistor and capacitor is in series with AC supply.

    If i increase the voltage supply frequency then what happen to the voltage across a capacitor ??

    I rekon the voltage gonna increases and the I going to decrease to negligible.

    Write down the reactance X of the capacitor and solve using vector analysis.

    The total impedance Z = R + jX
