Electrical Engineering tutorial question help watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi, as the title suggests I've just got a little question regarding a tutorial question.
    The question is as follows:

    Components of a high-pass filter are 1 kΩ and 0.02 µF. Input voltage is 20∠0° V.Determine the cutoff frequency in Hz and magnitude of output voltage when inputvoltage frequency is 2 kHz, 15 kHz, 40 kHz, and 100 kHz.

    Now from my tutorial solutions, the solution is:

    Cut-off frequencyω = 1/RC f = 1 / (2π RC) = 7.96 kHz
    Magnitude of output voltage is VOUT = ωRC/ √[(1 + (ωRC)2] x Vin
    at 2 kHz: VOUT = 4.87 V
    at 15 kHz: VOUT = 17.67 V
    at 40 kHz: VOUT = 19.62 V
    at 100 kHz VOUT = 19.94 V

    Now my question is, how do you determine the Vin in order to use the given formula.

Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
