# Total power, reactive power and pf?

Hi.
A 1000 V rms 60 Hz voltage source delivers power to two loads that are in parallel. The first load is a 10 micro Farad capacitor and the second load absorbs an apparent power of 10kVA with an 80% lagging power factor.
Find :
a) Total power
b) Total reactive power
c) The power factor for the source
d) rms...

Hi.

A 1000 V rms 60 Hz voltage source delivers power to two loads that are in parallel. The first load is a 10 micro Farad capacitor and the second load absorbs an apparent power of 10kVA with an 80% lagging power factor.

Find :

a) Total power

b) Total reactive power

c) The power factor for the source

d) rms source current

I am stuck, I did try but didn´t get anywhere.

Thanks
