For a parallel-plate capacitor (no dielectric), C = The capacitance of n capacitors in parallel: Ceq = The resistance of n resistors in series: Req =

Power dissipated in a resistor is P = iV = i2 R = In an RC circuit, capacitive time constant is C = RC. In an LR circuit, the inductive time constant is L = L/R. The reactance of a capacitor is XC = 1/C. The reactance of an inductor is XL = L. The impedance of a series LCR circuit is Z = R2 + (XL - XC )2 . Resonance angular frequency 2 = 1/LC. For EM waves in vacuum, E/B = c. Wavelength and frequency are related by c = f . 1 The direction of the wave is along the Poynting vector S = 0 E B. Intensity of polarized light through polarizer at angle with respect to light's polarization direction: I = I0 cos2 . 1 ...
