Enter the corner resistance (ohms) and the corner capacitance (Farad, F) into the Corner Frequency Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Corner Frequency. 

Corner Frequency Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Corner Frequency.

fc = 1 / (2*pi*R*C)


  • fc is the Corner Frequency (hz)
  • R is the corner resistance (ohms) 
  • C is the corner capacitance (Farad, F) 

How to Calculate Corner Frequency?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Corner Frequency.

  1. First, determine the circuit resistance (ohms). 
  2. Next, determine the capacitance (Farad, F). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = fc = 1 / (2*pi*R*C).
  4. Finally, calculate the Corner Frequency.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

circuit resistance (ohms) = 30

capacitance (Farad, F) = 20

fc = 1 / (2*pi*R*C) = ?
