    how do i work out the pd for a capacitor with a 100uF

    i found the equation v=Q/C

    but can not see how this fits in

    my voltage is 240v at 50hz - the capacitor is connected in series with a coil with a resistance of 8 ohms.

    i have worked out the current 3.74 A
    the phase angel -82.83 degress
    and the pd across resistor 29.92V
    and power dissapated 1.75 watts

    It depends on the circuit. Why don't you flash us one or describe it. Ratch
