# In parallel RC circuits, is it true that the larger the value of C, the larger the phase angle?

##### 2 Answers

Yes.

#### Explanation:

The larger value of C, the smaller is its reactance Xc and the larger is the current Ic.

As the angle is = arctg (Ic/Ir),

the larger Ic the larger the angle.

Yes.

#### Explanation:

When an AC voltage having frequency

Capacitive Reactance

Now in a parallel

The total impedance is calculated by adding individual impedance in parallel.

The phase angle between the applied voltage and total current is given by

We observe that larger value of capacitor will lead to larger phase angle,
