Worksheet: Resonance in Alternating-Current Circuits

In this worksheet, we will practice calculating the resonant frequency of alternating-current circuits containing resistors, capacitors, and inductors.


The resonant frequency of an RLC series circuit is 2.0×10 Hz. If the self-inductance in the circuit is 5.0 mH, what is the capacitance in the circuit?

  • A1.0×10 F
  • B1.8×10 F
  • C1.3×10 F
  • D2.5×10 F
  • E2.0×10 F


A 100 Ω resistor, 5.0 µF capacitor, and 2.0 H inductor are connected in series. This combination can be connected to a 100 V source operating at a constant frequency.

What is the resonant frequency of the circuit?

What is the power output of the source when connected to the circuit?

What is the 𝑄 of the circuit?
