This simulation calculator teaches us how to use the application but dose not teach us how it is dose or what we can do to solve the problem our self. Recommend for an easy way out.

This application is used to calculate the impedance of a passive network over a predefined frequency range. Users enter an equation which describes the network configuration. Instructions on how the equation is to be entered are provide. Although specific details on impedance are not provided, this material could be useful, when used in conjunction with other materials.

Technical Remarks:

It would be useful to have the ability to adjust the magnitude and frequency range of the plotted response.

Easy component value and configuration entry but.. ..scroll bar type vertical and horizontal scales are required to view the graph if the interesting bit happens to be <10ohms or >1MHz.
