Where did "t" come from, given that there's no "t" in the image?

Also, "that point in the pic, the middle bit" is too vague to be clear. How come you give an equation with Z in the denominator even though Z appears only as the left-hand side of equations in the image?

All I want to do is get that (-jwl) over to the RHS
Let a = Zt, b = jwl, c = jwc (this makes process EASIER/SHORTER)

So we have:
1 / (a-b) = c + 1/R
and you want the (-b) on the RHS, so leaving LHS = 1/a :YOKAY?!

Here we go:
1 / (a-b) = c + 1/R
change RHS to a fraction:
1 / (a-b) = (cR+1) / R
criss-cross multiplication:
R = (a-b)(cR+1)
Continue...
R = acR + a - bcR - b
R = a(cR+1) - b(cR+1)
R + b(cR+1) = a(cR+1)
[R + b(cR+1)] / a = cR+1
1 / a = (cR+1) / [R + b(cR+1)]

That's it...you can substitute back in if you wish...

If the initial equation is incorrect, that doesn't help.

True nuff.
Well, at least Kevin can "see" a few ways/tips to "rearrange":
I noticed that the ones he showed are not ending up correctly.

The impedance of an RLC parallel circuit is:

$\displaystyle \frac{1}{Z}=\frac{1}{R}+\frac{1}{j\omega C}+j\omega L$

Solve for Z in the form Z = A + jB. EE's use j instead of i (current).

Is that what this is all about? This is a trivial problem in complex algebra. You need to know how to add, subtract, and divide complex numbers.

EDIT:

$\displaystyle a+\frac{1}{jb}+jc=a +\frac{1+jbjc}{jb}=a+\frac{1-bc}{jb}\cdot \frac{j}{j}=a+\frac{bc-1}{b}j$

Kevin, the answer to your question is: Z = -wR^2 LC/(R^2 + w C)^2 + j w^2 R L C^2/(R^2 + wC)^2

Firstly, Z = -w^2 RLC/(R + JwC). Now multiply numerator and denominator by (R - jwC),
which is the complex conjugate of (R + jwC). The denominator now becomes (R^2 + wC)^2 which is real since j^2 = -1. You now have Z in the form A + j B

I hope that helps.

Good wishes, Tim06
