What does the loop rule say about VL?
The phase constant depends on how we start the system out. What is the phase constant if we start the system with charge on the capacitor and no current flowing? 5 Energy in LC circuits q Q 2 UE = = cos (t + ) 2C 2C 1 Li 2 = 1 LI 2 sin 2 ( t + ) UB = 2 2

LC circuits have practical applications for tuned systems: audio oscillators radio receivers An important concept for tuned systems: resonance Resonance occurs when a system is driven at the frequency at which it would naturally oscillate. 8 Natural resonance frequencies

When a harmonic system of natural frequency N is driven by a harmonic force of frequency F , 1) The system oscillates at F . 2) The response is out of phase with the driving force. For a force: F (t ) = F sin ( F t ) The response is: R(t ) F

Most real systems have damping. 10 RLC circuit: a harmonic system with damping Add resistance R for damping and a source of energy to keep the oscillations going. 11 Resonant behavior of an RLC circuit
