Current:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{i}}}_{{\mathbf{c}}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{I}}}_{{\mathbf{c}}}{\mathbf{c}}{\mathbf{o}}{\mathbf{s}}{\mathbf{\left(}}{\mathbf{\omega }}{\mathbf{t}}{\mathbf{-}}\frac{\mathbf{\pi }}{\mathbf{2}}{\mathbf{\right)}}}$

If ic = Ic, then we will have:
$\begin{array}{rcl}{\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{c}}& \mathbf{=}& {\mathbf{i}}_{\mathbf{c}}\mathbf{c}\mathbf{o}\mathbf{s}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{\omega }\mathbf{t}\mathbf{-}\frac{\mathbf{\pi }}{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{\right)}\\ \mathbf{1}& \mathbf{=}& \mathbf{c}\mathbf{o}\mathbf{s}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{\omega }\mathbf{t}\mathbf{-}\frac{\mathbf{\pi }}{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{\right)}\end{array}$
