# polarised condensor microphone

Sir/Madam, Kindly explain how is the following equation derived for the polarised condenser microphone? The output voltage V0 fed from the microphone to the preamplifier will be

how is it derived? Thank you,

On the input side of $$\C_c\$$, you have a voltage source (I assume of value E0) connected through $$\R_c\$$ to three capacitive loads $$\C_s\$$, $$\C_t\$$ and your signal $$\\Delta\$$C(t). In the steady state, since there's no DC path to ground and $$\\Delta\$$C(0)=0, the junction of $$\R_c\$$ and the capacitors will be E0.
However, when $$\\Delta\$$C(t) changes, the coulomb count in your capacitor array cannot change instantly, so as a result the voltage changes. The change in voltage is proportional to the change in capacitance, which is
$$\{\Delta C(t)\over C_s + C_t}\$$
