To find the voltage drop across the capacitor (E_C) in an RLC parallel circuit, we first calculate the voltage across the resistor (E_R) using the formula E_R = I * R, where I is the current flow and R is the resistance. In this case, E_R = 12 * 40 = 480 V. In a parallel circuit, the voltage drop across each component is equal, so the voltage drop across the capacitor (E_C) is also 480 V.
