Find impedance of the circuit below. R1 = 10 Ω, C= 100mF
IR
I IC

Solution: Reactance of the capacitor = XC = 1/jωC = 1/j(2ПfC) where f = frequency = 60 Hz
Substituting values: XC = 1/j(2Пx60x100x10-3) = 1/j37.7 ohm
Let equivalent impedance of the parallel combination of the resistance and capacitance be Z. Then, 1/Z = 1/R1 + 1/XC = 1/10 + j37.7 = 0.1 + j37.7 = √(0.12 + 37.72)/tan-1(37.7/0.1)
1/Z = 37.7/89.85O
Z = (1/37.7)/-89.85O = 0.0265/-89.85O ohm
Impedance can also be expressed as: Z = 0.0265cos(-89.85O) + j0.0265sin(-89.85O) = 0.0000693 - j0.0265
Z ≈ - j0.0265 ohm
