Capacity of Current in Alternating Currents

Question: A series RLC circuit is driven at a frequency of 500 Hz. The phase angle between the applied voltage and current is determined from an oscilloscope from measurement to be delta =75 degrees. If the total resistance is known to be 35 omega and the inductance is 0.15H, what is the capacity of the circuit?
