Uh, I am not a genius, but I already know the formulas in question. I just thought a simple little mind teaser might be appreciated...............SORRY.

To rearrange use a KNOWN equation like 24=2*3*4 as a primer
Yes, this is a very great idea, using a known quantity to define variables.

And the formula, AFAIK, is generally accepted in all electronics as being adequate. I am sure there are situation where it is not accurate enough, that would be few and far between.

Don't take it personally tickyul, I am pretty sure Tek wasn't jumping your case for the fun, it is just that we do happen to get a ton of posts from here time to time that are essentially a cut and paste of their homework or job request (see those all the time on the network engineering boards) to which the person has no intention in actually understanding the problem, but just wanted a quick solution without putting any effort into it.


I like these type of mind teasers, but as Tek's comment points out, there are a lot who end up abusing the game.

Transpose and the show formulas for Frequency and Inductance, show your work.
If this isn't directly out of a text book I'll eat 15 Snickers bars.
