Paul, here's the easy way . . . *PIC*
to visualize impedance and phase.

I wake up after a tasty nap, wander through the facilities, and think I'll check my e-mail before dozing off 'til morn, click on the web browser, and THIS is what I see?
Nightmares. You're causing nightmares.

No this isn't nightmares. This is the Easy Way. If you want nightmares, go look at a thorough rigorous treatment invovling calculus.
Re: I'm with Bogie ...
I became an architect (as opposed to an engineer) so I wouldn't have to look at that crap anymore! I still get night sweats thinking about my attempts to pass college calculus. Ugh.

I DID go through the whole nine yards complete with complex analysis, control systems, Bessel functions and all. Even though I did pretty well, I STILL sometimes wake up with Calculus nightmares.

How do you think I feel? I was a "math genius" in HS, back before most schools went beyond trig. Went to college as a math major. Somehow survived calculus, but I don't know how. Then came linear algebra. Can you say "WTF?" End of my math career, off to English where I had some clue what was happening.
That was when I first understood that many very smart people still have areas they are not wired for. I knew math and engineering folks in college who could do that stuff like bangin' a drum but could not write a complete grammatical sentence if failure to do so meant flunking out of college. It was like Greek to them.
BTW, not saying all of anyone is like that. I also knew folks who could do everything very well. Hated them!
Re: So true!
I graduated near the top of my class in Architecture. My friends hated me because I would sleep through (or miss entirely) the lecture classes and then cram at the last minute and ace the tests. Anything requiring writing came easy. I got to skip a couple of English courses based on SAT scores. I felt right at home in the design studios and was artistic enough to really sell a design. Now, while this sounds like I'm trying to brag, I'm just setting this up to make a point. I could sit in basic Calculus trying to grasp a simple concept and there would be a total blockhead next to me saying, "How can you not get this?" Frustrating.
People are wired different indeed. I just wish was a bit better at math, because it sure comes in handy around here at times!
