13.5: Resistance and Capacitance in Series

  • Page ID
  • Likewise the impedance of a resistance and a capacitance in series is


    The voltage and current are related, as usual, by

    \[V = IZ.\]

    Equation \ref{13.5.1} shows that the voltage lags behind the current by

    \[\tan^{-1} \dfrac{1}{RC\omega}.\]

    and that
