Question

An RLC series circuit has an impedance of 60 Ω and a power factor of 0.50, with the voltage lagging the current. (a) Should a capacitor or an inductor be placed in series with the elements to raise the power factor of the circuit?
(b) What is the value of the capacitance or self-inductance that will raise the power factor to unity?
