Short Answer

A high-pass filter with a crossover frequency of uses a resistor. What is the value of the capacitor?

The value of the capacitor,

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step1:  Filter

The opposite is true for an RC high-pass filter, commonly known as an RC Differentiator.

As seen above, the input signal is applied directly to the capacitor via a resistor in parallel with the output.

High-frequency signals can travel through this arrangement, whereas low-frequency impulses are blocked by the capacitor.

Step2: Find Capacitance

Multiply both sides by

Fill in the blanks in the equation
