    What is the formula for Power Factor in Capacitors?
    Say the theres only a power sourse at 30V 50KHz and three capacitors and three resistors.

    Is the equation PF= VsI or PF=cosθ?

    You need to provide more specific information than the somewhat vague circuit description you mentioned.

    In general the current phase angle in a simple RC circuit leads the supply voltage phase angle by a certain calculated angle, θ. The load power factor will be cos(θ).

    Post your circuit and you will hopefully get a more detailed response - if that's your requirement.
