An AC generator with an output rms voltage of 36.0 V at
a frequency of 60.0 Hz is connected across a 12.0 - µF capacitor.
Find the (a) capacitive reactance, (b) rms current, and 

(c) maximum current in the circuit. (d) Does the capacitor
have its maximum charge when the current takes its maximum
value? Explain.
