fc-70.7% Vc=(15*70.7)/100 Vc=10.60volts |

Critical frequency is less then 70. 7% by, O/P voltage. |

How did 70. 7 arise, can you please explain me ? |

Ganga said: (Jan 18, 2014) | |

Critical frequency < 1/sqrt(2) of o/p voltage. => critical freq = 15/sqrt(2) = 10.605 V. |

I think it is more intuitive to think of it in terms of dB. Max voltage is 15V, convert this to dB. 15V = 20*log(15) = 23.52dB. Voltage at the critical freq will be 3dB less than this max. 23.52dB - 3dB = 20.52dB. Then convert back to voltage 20.52dB = 10.62V. |

Critical frequency is the 70.7% of the original value or -3 db in terms of db. |

How to convert dB into the voltage? Please answer this. |

Shailendra said: (Sep 15, 2016) | |

Db to Voltage: 20log(V) = 20.52, log(V) = 20.52/20 = 1.026, V = 10^(1.026), V = 10.62. |

As we know, that voltage output is 70.7% of input voltage at critical frequency. |

So, which one is the correct formula of all the formulae that has been presented here. I am confused. |

Selam said: (Nov 19, 2022) | |

Vc = Vs * 0.707, Vc =15v * 0.707, Vc = 10.62. |
