    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.

    Oh!
    Thanks for that.

    Kevin.
     
  4. 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 ? :))

    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

  10. Ah, so a mole of Hydrogen has the same mass as a mole of Uranium. Got
    it! ;-)
     
  11. 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?

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