I am working on an example from a book, which is: a 1uf capacitor connected in series with a 1500 ohm resistor, AC 60V 60Hz PS. So I'm experimenting with CircuitLab at the same time. From the calculations I did (and from the book example), the readings should be approx 20 mA, 30V across the resistor, and 52V across the capacitor. I ran this in CircuitLab, and everything checks out - the amperage, voltage across the resistor, EXCEPT the voltage across the capacitor - which is showing the full 60V instead of the approx. 52V? Am I doing something wrong or is this the way it should be displayed?
You can see in the top right of the image the voltage legend for the cap & res.
This is not really a HW problem, just something I'm working on on my own, trying to get used to learn CircuitLab and figuring out RC circuits.
Thanks for any help.
