Impedance Calculation

  1. Mar 25, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I am trying to find value of a capacitor knowing capacitor impedance (Phasor) and ω (in rad/sec).

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Zc = -j/ωC
    C = -j/ωZc

    My question is do I have to convert the ω into degrees/sec before doing the calculations since Z(impedance) is in phasor form? I think i need to but just want to make sure.

    Omega is in radians per second.
    So the answer is No.
