Lesson Plan: Resonance in Alternating Current Circuits Physics
This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to calculate the resonant frequency and 𝑄 value of simple resistive-capacitive-inductive circuits.
Students will be able to
- use the following equations to calculate resonant circuit frequencies and circuit values: and .
Students should already be familiar with
- the angular frequency of an alternating current, ,
- capacitive reactance,
- inductive reactance.
Students will not cover
- parallel circuits.
