    Solving voltage divider involving capacitors

    Homework Statement Given ZV1 = ZV2 = 100Ω, ZCCV = ZCV = 2000/j = -2000j, and VV/VC = 0.04789. I'm trying to get the given VV/VC result. Homework Equations I know that 1/ZV = 1/ZV1 + 1/ZV2 + 1/ZCV VV = ZV / (ZV + ZCCV) * VC The Attempt at a Solution 1/ZV = 1/ZV1 + 1/ZV2 + 1/ZCV = 1/100 +...

    Cable-to-cable crosstalk (Capacitative Coupling)

    ZV is close to 2K ohms? Why is that? I thought the combined resistance ZV is calculated as ZV = [1/100 + 2000 + 1/100]-1 = 0.0005 if CV = CCV. This gives me the voltage divider ZV / (ZV + [jwCCV]-1) = 0.005/(0.005 + 2000) = 2.5 * 10-7, which doesn't give me the CCC value of -26.4dB.
