1/(2 x pi x f x C)

Where f is frequency in Hertz and C is capacitance in Farads.

I confused because: In one PushPull EL84/6BQ5 use for comon cathode resistor arround 140 Ohms I want Bypass this resistor, and calculate: Reactance=(1/50)*140 Reactance=2.8 Now find capacitor for 2.8 Ohms reactance at 20Hz 1/(2*pi*f*c)= 1/(2*3.141516*20* "test value capacitor in farads")= for 2800uf 1/(2*3.141516*20*0.0028)= 2.84 Ohms Ok. now;.... for correct bypass cathode resistor 140 Ohms at 20hz need 2800uF capacitor ????? Please help !!!!!

R= Rk'//Rk Rk' = (Rp+ra)/(mu+1) (Common-cathode stage) Rp = Plate resistance ra = Ri or internal resistance of the tube. Rk = cathode bias resistor. Note that C should always be much larger than Rk but not much larger than necessary for the lowest -3dB point wanted: t = R*C Cheers, __________________ Frank
