A capacitor and a resistor are connected in series to a sine wave generator. The frequency is set so that the capacitive reactance is equal to the resistance and, thus, an equal amount of voltage appears across each component. If the frequency is increased

Frequency and capacitive reactance value are inversely proportional to each other, when fc increased reduces the value of Xc hence VR >Vc.

Dear fellows.

AS xc = 1/2 pi.f.c as f increases inversely xc decrease,

Also vc = i. xc as xc decreases so voltage across capacitor decreases.

Thus vr is greater than vc.

AS xc = 1/2 pi.f.c as f increases inversely xc decrease,

Also vc = i. xc as xc decreases so voltage across capacitor decreases.

Thus vr is greater than vc.

Capacitive reactance is inversely propotional to the frequency but resistance is independent from frequency. So resistance is more than capacitance. So answer is vr > vc.

Plain English. Capacitors allow a change in voltage to pass through. If it's allowing a higher frequency to pass through then the voltage drop on the capacitor lowers.

vc = i.xc and vr = i.r.

vc = vr.

So vr >vc.

vc = vr.

So vr >vc.

From the ques Vr = Vc.

So IR = IXc.

Xc inver.proper to f,

As f increase Xc decrease resulting IXc decrease i.e Vc decrease.

Hence Vr > Vc. answer.

So IR = IXc.

Xc inver.proper to f,

As f increase Xc decrease resulting IXc decrease i.e Vc decrease.

Hence Vr > Vc. answer.

As we know fc=1/2pifc. So if frequency increases than vc will decrease.

Vc=i.Xc & Vr=i.R.

Given that

As given in question Vc = Vr

So f is inversely proportional to Vc.

Vr>Vc.

Given that

As given in question Vc = Vr

So f is inversely proportional to Vc.

Vr>Vc.

We know that Vc=i.Xc & Vr=i.R

Given that

Vc = Vr

So f is inversely proportional to Vc.

Vr>Vc

Given that

Vc = Vr

So f is inversely proportional to Vc.

Vr>Vc

xc=1/2pi.f.c;

So if f increases then xc decreases. So voltage drop across the 'C' decreases.

So if f increases then xc decreases. So voltage drop across the 'C' decreases.
