# Homework Help: Low Pass: Why did my professor use frequency and not angular frequency?

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

We are given a passive RC low pass filter with an input voltage of 5 Vrms at a frequency of 1 kHz. The resistor has a value of 22 kΩ, the capacitor a value of 100 nF. There is a current i accross the resistor. (see picture below)

We are to calculate the magnitude and phase angle of the output voltage.

By the way, in the picture below is in german, so V eff means rms, I think the rest should be apparent.

2. Relevant equations

UR = R*I

Uout = I*XC

XC = I / ω*C

3. The attempt at a solution

Analytically, this is not a problem, and I have attached the solution from the professor. My only problem is that for ω the professor used the frequency f, and not 2πf. As in:

ω = f = 1 kHz

This makes no sense to me and seems wrong. Could somebody possibly clarify what´s going on here? Thanks in advance.

Seems wrong to me as well. I got 0.36V.

I think this must be a clerical mistake, as in all of the other examples he uses ω = 2πf. Thanks a bunch for checking!
