Some simple algebra that's bugging me

  1. Feb 28, 2005 #1
    550,000Hz = 1 / (2 π √ L*1800E-12C )

    I'm trying to isolate for L but I can't seem to do it right.

    multiply 550,000 * (2 π √ L*1800E-12 )

    then divide 1 by 550,000 and put 4π over it. then square both sides to get ride of the sq. root giving something like..

    L = (4π^2 * 1.8E-9C) / 550,000Hz

    [tex]550,000=\frac{1}{2\pi\sqrt{L*1.8*10^{-9}}}[/tex]
    [tex]\sqrt{L*1.8*10^{-9}}=\frac{1}{2\pi*550,000}[/tex]
    [tex]L*1.8*10^{-9}=(\frac{1}{2\pi*550,000})^2[/tex]
    [tex]L=\frac{(\frac{1}{2\pi*550,000})^2}{1.8*10^{-9}}[/tex]
