cosφ = *R**/**√***R**^{2} + 2 × π × f_{d} × *1**/**2 × π × f*_{d} × C^{2}

This formula derives from

cosφ = *R**/**Z* = *R**/**√***R**^{2} + (X_{L} - X_{C} )^{2}

where Z is the impedance of the circuit and XL = 2 · π · fd · L and XC = 1 / (2 · π · fd · C) are the inductive and capacitive reactances respectively.
