Capacitance and Current Flowing

Now consider a capacitor with capacitance C connected to an AC source. If the AC source provides a voltage V(t)=V0*cos(wt), what is the current I(t) through the capacitor as a function of time?
Express your answer in terms of V0, C, w and t. Use the cosine function with a phase shift, not the sine function, in your answer.

Solution Summary

This solution shows step-by-step calculations to determine the impedance and current flow of the capacitor.
