Derivation of self inductance formula in an LC circuit

  1. May 4, 2015 #1
    My observation is to verify self inductance formula by measuring the resonant frequencies of different coils in an LC circuit.

    For this, I am asked to use this formula by my mentor :

    L = 1/(4π^2 . f^2 . C)

    f = different resonant frequencies,
    C = capacitance of the capacitor in the LC circuit.

    How can this be derived from the general formula of self inductance of a coil?

    Welcome to the PF.

    What reading have you been doing about this subject? Can you post some links to websites that discuss LC resonance?

    What are you going to compare the experimental value (formula by your mentor)with? Is the inductance already known to you?
