I made the experience that many radio amateurs give up, if the first mathematical equation cropping.
But that does not have to be.
On this webpage I offer the calculation of simple circuits and other things from the range of radio amateurs as forms.
Their use is easy, so each one can use it.
If you want to know, how looks the equations used into the scripts, then see the mathematical background at the end of each webpage.
Parallel and series connections of resistors
But only rarely resistances are available in the computed values. Change on the specified page the calculated resistances against from you used and see, which deviations with it to arise.
If larger power must be processed, you can use the calculation of power attenuators to determine additionally the necessary power dissipations for individual resistors.
At the attenuators were used so far, the input and output impedances are equal. However if different impedances must be adapted somehow, it can be also used resistors for it. The calculation of the loss arising inevitably with it determine the calculation of attenuators with minimum loss.
Since no coils or capacitors are used in the 3 circuit above, the matching takes place frequency-independently. Attenuators are suitable therby for the wide-band matching.
Signal splitters with resistors
Sometimes it is necessary to divide an output signal on several building groups. Also this is realizable with resistors. The calculation of the loss arising inevitably with it determine the calculation of signal splitters. Since no coils or capacitors are used, the matching takes place frequency-independently. Attenuators are suitable therby for the wide-band matching.
Color code of resistors
Especially mechanical small resistors are provided with a code in the form of color bands. For resistors with 3 or 4 color bands, the first two color bands denotes the value. The third color band denotes the multiplier and the fourth color band denotes the tolerance. For resistors with 5 color bands, the first three color bands denotes the value. The fourth color band denotes the multiplier and the fifth color band denotes the tolerance. There is a color code calculator for resistors, which used a small ajavscript.
Band spreads with variable capacitors
A variable capacitor is rather rarely directly applicable in a circuit. If the tuning range is too largely and/or the initial capacity is too small, the desired values can be reached nevertheless by two additional capacitors. Frequently this is used as so called band spread in a VFO. You can use the calculator of the band spread.
But only rarely capacitors are available in the calculated values. Change on the specified page the calculated capacitors against from you used and see, which deviations with it to arise.
Parallel connection of reactances
Every now and then resistors must be connected in parallel. With ohmic resistors the calculation is simple. The calculation of parallel connection of reactances is a little more difficult, but possible under the same rules.
On this webpage you can calculate reactances with two coils, two capacitors and a capacitor and a coil. The components can thereby also contain resistive components.
Reactances in series and parallel connections
Two important elements are the coil and the capacitor, particularly if they appear together as resonant circuit. The calculation of resonant circuits determine mutually the frequency, the inductivity and the capacity of a tank circuit. By the way also the impedances of the circuits will be calculated. That are equal to the inductive reactances of the coils and to the capacitive reactances of the capacitors.
Matches with LC networks
Two circuit groups with different resistances can be connected with less loss over a coil and a capacitor. The values of the LC networks determined with the calculation of match of resistances are valid always only for one frequency, since the used parts are frequency-dependent.
But it is not necessary, lest the output resistor is a resistance. It can be also a reactance. The script calculate only LC networks with low-pass characteristic. Such LC networks are in use in antenna tuners. The values of the LC networks determined with the calculation of match of reactances are valid always only for one frequency, since the used parts are frequency-dependent.
The level indication at instruments with an output or input of 50 Ω takes place usually in decibels relative to 1 mW (dBm). The indication in watts (W), milliwatts (mW) or microwatts (µW) is often important for amateur radio operators. A conversion of power levels into each other are possible with a small javascipt. In addition you can convers power levels and voltage levels at 50 Ω hear.
It's possible to calculate the distance between 2 places on earth is possible, if you know the geographical latitude and longitude of both. In addition, it is possible to determine the direction. Besides, the conversion of a locator in the geographical latitude and longitude is possible.
All electronic components generate heat which must be dissipated in order do not to destroy it. The calculation of the thermal resistance of a heatsink determined the maximal required thermal resistance of the heatsink.
