Anyone major in maths? please correct this
See my calculation here:
L=2.91mH C=68.2pF + 180pF=248.2pF L=2.91mH=0.0291H C=248.2pF=0.0000000002482F Rs=sqrt(L/C) Rs=sqrt(0.0291/0.0000000002482) Rs=sqrt(117244157.937147461) Rs=10827.9341 Cs=[2*pi*sqrt(LC)]/Rs Cs=[2*(22/7)*sqrt(0.0291*0.0000000002482)]/10827.9341 Cs=0.000000000156010404798 If 10^9 = n Then Cs=1.56nF So I get Rs=10k8 Cs=1.56nF Sorry that I have only O level maths and that was grade B I got many many many years ago!!

btw, a scientific calculator makes life a lot easier  and the Texas Instruments version can even talk to your DVM. (I am embarrassed to say that I use an HP41 which is over 20 years old.) four decades ago when I took physics and calculus we had to do this stuff with a book of logarithms and a slide rule. jack

I have a notsoold TI86 myself, although I never use it anymore, instead preferring to use 'Virtual TI' (a TI calc emulator for Windows), since it is far faster than any real calculator.

I told my kids I had to get an RPN calculator as my mom is Polish. I used to program little magnetic tapes  worked out the tractrix horn formula in RPN.

RPN
I am an RPN addict and simply cannot use anything else than an RPN. And I use my trusty HP32SII because it's awake INSTANTLY when I need it; I do not have to PLEASE WAIT for anything to get it's act together.
