Homework Help: Series RC and parallel RC

  1. Jul 31, 2011 #1
    Given : a series RC circuit with Rs and Cs and Parallel circuit with Rp and Cp....also given both are equivalent and Q-factor is high. Calculate the range of w for both circuits are equivalent.

    pls help asap...

    i got it till this..

    Rs=Rp/(1+Q^2) and Cp=Cs(1+1/Q^2) assuming Q=1/wRsCs=wRpCp....but when it comes to finding the range of w I'm struck...
