Use the circuits and Pico Scope to experimentally find the quality factor Q. Ringing will also be investigated in the parallel circuit. LC Resonant Circuit Parallel: From theory the resonance frequency for an RLC circuit is 1 2 f LC = . For the circuit shown in figure1 the value experimentally for f =31840Hz (graph1) and from theory f = 30077Hz (graph2) the two values have a 5.9% discrepancy. A plot of V out /V in vs frequency is shown in graph3 a table of all points attached to back, table1 attach. This circuit is a voltage divider where ( 29 ( 29 2 2 2 2 2 1 2 2 1 2 out in fL f CL V V fL R f CL  = + for f<f and f>f respectively. Q was then found, from theory Q= RC and experimentally 3 dB f Q f = . Values for f 3dB were found by finding two frequencies giving the closest attenuation to 70.7% and then using linearization. From theory frequencies giving the closest attenuation to 70....
