(A) Introduction A dramatic feature of ac circuits is resonance . Inductive reactance X L = ω L increases as the frequency is increased, but capacitive reactance X C = –1/ ω C decreases with higher frequencies. Because of these opposite characteristics, for any LC combination there is a frequency at which X L equals X C , as one increases and the other decreases. This case of equal is called resonance , and the circuit is then a resonant circuit . Figure 1: Series RLC circuit. For a series RLC circuit, as shown in Fig. 1, the total impedance Z , the phase angle ϕ , the current i , the output voltage V out and the gain G are: C j L j R Z ω ω − +...
