# the circuit capacitance

The question is:

My question is how did he get the 100 (highlighted)?

That 100 pops up for the omega. With small approximation I would say that you have a 16.7 Hz system :) one of my favorite ;), the supply of a Swiss, German, Austrian, Swedish railway. 2 * pi * 16.6667 Hz = 104.7 rad/s. (thanks @user2233709)

Otherwise it is just a good round number without physical explanation (I do not think it is easy to find a system with 15.915 Hz of fundamental).

Note: that 100 confirmed by the "100 rad/s" used one line below.
