<docvin> Remind me of the formula for Johnson noise I had to memorise the
other day.
<docvin> v_rms = 2*( k*T*B*R )^(1/2)
<docvin> Catie, if you don't like that one, I think in the AC case it
becomes "2root(ktBZ)
<WzDD> docvin: is that really the formula for Johnson noise?
<docvin> WzDD: No, actually, I just thought I'd make up a random formula
about rooting Catie, but I got lazy towards the end.
