Unformatted text preview: Chapter 31 Electromagnetic Oscillations and Alternating Current In this chapter we will cover the following topics:Electromagnetic oscillations in an LC circuit Alternating current (AC) circuits with resistors, capacitors, and inductors in series ( RCL circuits) Resonance in RCL circuits Power in ACcircuits Transformers, AC power transmission (31  1) L C The circuit shown in the figure consists of a capacitor and an inductor . We give the capacitor an initial charge and then observe how the circuit behaves. The capacitor will d LC C L Q Oscillations ischarge through the inductor resulting in a time dependent current . i We will show that the charge on the capacitor plates as well as the current 1 in the inductor oscillate with constant amplitude at an angular frequency The total energy in the circuit is t q i LC U ϖ = 2 2 he sum of the energy stored in the electric field of the capacitor and the energy stored the magnetic field of the inductor. . 2 2 The total energy of the circuit does not chan E B E B U U q Li U U U C = + = + 2 2 2 2 ge with time.
