PARALLEL RESONANCE

Introduction | Questions | Quiz
INTRODUCTION

Resonance occurs in a parallel RLC circuit when inductive and capacitive reactances are equal. Resistance does not affect the resonant frequency.

Formula for calculating resonant frequency:

    f = 1 000 000 / 2pi * sqr root of (LC )
      f = frequency in kilohertz
      L = inductance in microhenrys
      C = capacitance in picofarads
      2pi = 6.28
Note: Use calculator to compute values. Look closely at the values of L and C. If the values are small, the resonant frequency is high and all answers in kHz can be eliminated.
