    In topic, series resistor capacitor circuits, below the resistor capacitor circuit diagram the label in italic says series capacitor inductor circuit:voltage lags current by 0 to 90. I think label should be series resistor capacitor circuit: voltage lags current by 0 to 90.

    I am learning so much from this site, really very appreciative of your work.

    Thank you

    Verified. Nice catch, took me a few minutes to catch on to what you were saying.

    Currently reads...

    In the last section, we learned what would happen in simple resistor-only and capacitor-only AC circuits. Now we will combine the two components together in series form and investigate the effects. (Figure below)

    I have made the correction in the master copy at ibiblio.org

    Thanks for pointing out the error.
