Question
can you plz solve this,i searched on google but not succeeded
a sinusoidally varying voltage is applied across 8 uf capacitor.The frequency of the voltage is 3 khz ,and the voltage amplitude is 30v find the displacement current in the capacitor

Answer
This is application of Ohm's Law applied to ac circuits and can be found in any basic text on ac circuits.

http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/textbook/alternating-current/chpt-4/ac-capacitor

The above link about mid page has an example of the very question you asked.

If you use that example and plug in your numbers for ac voltage applied to the 8uf cap it will give you the answer you seek.

Good Luck.
