A $$2300$$ $$V,$$ $$3$$-phase synchronous motor driving a pump is provided with a line ammeter and a field rheostat. When the rheostat is adjusted such that the $$ac$$ line current is minimum. The ammeter reads $$8.8$$ $$A.$$ What is the power being delivered to the pump, neglecting losses? How should the rheostat be adjusted so that the motor operates at $$0.8$$ leading power factor? How many $$kVARs$$ is the motor supplying to the system at this new power factor?

Show via the construction of a suitable Gaussian surface, that the capacitance of a spherical capacitor consisting of two concentric shells of radii $$a$$ and $$b$$ is given by $$C = 4\pi {\varepsilon _0}{{ab} \over {\left( {b - a} \right)}}$$ where $${\varepsilon _0}$$ is the free space permittivity.
