So effectively, that resistor is dissipating 0.31 watts normally and so you need at least a 1/2 watt resistor?
Thanks.

The net result is that the resistor sees 4 x ½ x C x V^2 x 8000 = Resistor watts, when C is in Farads and V is in volts. With V=14 volts and C=0.1 microFarad the net result is that the resistor will see 0.31 watts. ( r egardless of the value of the resistor if it is about 100 ohms).
