Homework Help: Solving for C and F

  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.

    do you mean you want C on the left handside of the equation? manipulation of equation?

    PS: i believe the admin will do something about your posts because they are duplicates. They will say something like 'Please do not cross-post' or .........; move or delete your posts.

    Make C the subject of the equation. That can't be too hard, surely?

    Xc = 1/2πfC

    => 2πfCXc = 1

    => C = 1/Xc2πf

    Where's the problem?
