Help for solving for C and F please

  1. Sep 7, 2004 #1
    This is the first time ive used this forum and i really could use someones help on how to solve for C in my formula instead of Xc

    My formula is

    Xc = 1 / (2PiFC) "Pi is, pi yea know, 3.14", (not 2 other unknowns)

    Instead of solving for Xc i need to be able to solve for C and i dont know how to go about doing that...

    any sort of help would be appreciated :)

    Also... i looked down the page alilbit and i also need a formula on how to solve for F

    If someone could show me how thats done so i wouldnt have to ask anyone anymore i would be very happy

    Multiply both sides of the equation by C:

    CX_c = 1/(2Ï€F)

    Then divide both sides by X_c:

    C = 1/(2πFX_c)

    By the way, it is considered bad netiquette to post this in several sub-fora on the same forum. I understand that you could be in a hurry to get this solved, but if you post it in the appropriate sub-forum (homework help), people will get to it and assist you just as quickly.
