This is because the two are proportional, so any deviance will be mirrored across the resonant frequency axis, forming a distinct oval shape. At resonance, the reactance of the inductor and the capacitor cancel each other so that the impedance (Z) is equal to just the resistance R. Calculate the resistance of the circuit. Is the resistance equal to 10 ohms? Why not? No, the resistance is not equal to 10 ohms, it is larger (16.6 ohms). The equation above isn’t entirely practical for this application. There are outside influences that might affect the effective resistance of the circuitry, and it is entirely possible that there is resistance elsewhere in the system, not just in the 10 ohm resistor.

The experiment as a whole was a success. We were able to derive quantifiable results both theoretically and experimentally for the resonant frequency in a given system. Our results were accurate, with a percent error of only 2.4%. This small error can be written off as small human errors or environmental influences, perhaps even discrepancies in the resistance values of the system itself. Nonetheless, accurate results were derived, and the process for the experiment is viable. The accuracy of the given frequency and current equations for LRC circuitry was proven. -- Sources -- [1].

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
