The combination of a pure capacitance C in Farads and pure resistance R in ohms is called an RC circuit.
A circuit in which resistance and capacitance are connected together in a series is called an RC series circuit. RC Circuit is known as the resistor-capacitor circuit. It is also a basic electrical circuit in which resistance R of the resistor is connected in a series with the capacitor of a capacitance C.

Formula of RC Circuit Calculator
F = 1 / (2π*R*C)
R = resistance of the resistor in Ω
C = capacitance of the capacitor in Farads
F = frequency in hertz
To calculate frequency, you can use our Frequency Calculator.
If we have a capacitance is 13F and resistance is 8Ω then calculate the frequency of an RC Circuit.
Capacitance = 13F
Resistance = 8 Ω
Frequency = ?
To get frequency, let's use the formula below:
F = 1 / (2π * R * C)
Putting values in the formula:
F = 1 / (2 * 3.14 * 13 * 8)
Frequency = 0.0015303 Hz
