Problem P. 4568. (October 2013)

P. 4568. There is a resistor of resistance R and a capacitor of capacitance C connected in parallel in a black box. Somebody states that this arrangement at a certain frequency cannot be differentiated from that black box which contains an appropriately chosen resistor and capacitance which are connected in series. Is he or she right?

Megoldásvázlat. Igen, ha a sorosan kapcsolt elemek adatai

\(\displaystyle R'=\frac{R}{1+R^2\omega^2C^2} \qquad \rm{\'es}\qquad C'=C\,\frac{1+R^2\omega^2C^2}{R^2\omega^2C^2}.\)
