When you have the RMS (240v) to get the peak value you x by 1.41
240v x 1.41 = 338.4v

but when you have peak value (338.4v) you x it by 0.707
338.4v x 0.707 = 239.2488v (and not 240v

why not divide by the same amount (ie 1.41)??????????????

Hello Paddy,

You shouldn't use 1.41 but the root of 2 and not 0.707 but 0.5* root of 2.

You absolutely CAN divide by the same amount, because mathematically it is the same thing.

I hope this isn't too patronising. Apologies if it is. Either way, take a look:


1.414 ia a 3dp rounding of root2. 0.707 is a 3dp rounding of 1/root2.

Peak V = RMS x 1.414 1.414 is roughly the same as root2 so:
Peak V = RMS x root2

Likewise -

RMS = PeakV x 0.707 0.707 is roughly the same as 1/root2
RMS = PeakV x 1/root2 Therefore:
RMS = PeakV/root2 Which is roughly the same as:
RMS = PeakV/1.414

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Andy.

Sorry for moaning tonight - just new to the forum and nothing positive to say.

Is thsi for real?
surely rounding up / down was somewhere in your education??

This is like the joke my neice loves - 11 Fingers??

holds up both hands counts down from 10 and adds 5 to the 6 that she has reached. She is 7 - your age is??

Lol. Yeah, rounding was in my GCSE Maths education.
