How is it derived?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The cutoff frequency is Fc = 1/2piRC. R = resistance, C = capacitance.

I read somewhere it has to do with Laplace Transforms, but I'm not sure where to go from here. It kind of irks me to just accept this equation without some proof.

Thanks!
