# Resonant frequency formula

Hi all,
As we all know Fr of a resonant circuit is 1/(2PiSqrt(LC))
I saw in the ARRL hand book that they have this formula but have 159 where
the one is.
I also saw the use of it here>

If 159 is above the line does this mean at Fr the resistance of the tank is
159 ohms?

Cheers,
Kevin.

No. 159 ~= 1000 / (2*pi).

They've changed the units of f, L and C from Hertz, Henrys and Farads to
MHz, uH and pF.

3. ### Kevin DoyleGuest

Oh!
Thanks for that.

Kevin.

Yep, a fine example of an attempt to simplify things by making them
more obscure.

Stick to SI. Always.

What's your weight, then?

9.81*kg ? )

7. ### Fred BartoliGuest

Stick to basic physics, always.
Weight is irrelevant: it doesn't depends on you only and changes everywhere
you go.

You should have asked the right question: what's your mass?
Then comes the right answer.

"Fred Bartoli"
I remember some people who confused the concept of weight and mass.

To make clear the difference I finally said: "you can think the mass as
the number atoms of an object. If you are on the moon or on the earth
the number of atoms (mass) will not change, but the weight (influenced
by the gravity force) will."

Bye

Ah, so a mole of Hydrogen has the same mass as a mole of Uranium. Got
it! ;-)

Well, irregardless of what element, what do you do with the mole tunnels
on your lawn?

Well, you _do_ admit that a gram of gold has the same mass as a gram
of feathers, right?

;-)

....but not the same number of atoms.
