Homework Help: Rms of a triangle wave

  1. Jan 31, 2006 #1
    I've seen some coefficent such as [tex]\frac{1}{2\sqrt 3}[/tex] for triangle waves. Who ordered that? How can I derieve it? It doesn't seem to be [tex]\sqrt{ \frac{1}{T} \int_0^T {V^2 dt} }[/tex] because I found something like that for triangle wave: [tex]V_m 2\sqrt 2 f[/tex] (am I wrong?? or I'm calculating the wrong thing??)

    Whoops! Miscalculation! It's [tex]\frac{V_m}{\sqrt 3}[/tex]. Gotta sleep, I guess...
