#### Question

A capacitor of capacitance 0.5 μF is connected to a source of alternating e.m.f. of frequency 100 Hz. What is the capacitive reactance? (Π = 3.142)

#### Solution

C = `0.5 xx 10^(-6)`

f = 100 Hz

`X_L =1/(omegaC)`

`= 1/(2pifxxC)`

`= 1/(2xx3.14 xx 100xx0.5xx10^(-6))`

= 3184.7 Ω

Is there an error in this question or solution?
