- Homework Statement:
- Having issues with getting the same series resistive and reactive impedance of the coil and cap they did in the figures

- Relevant Equations:
- reactance equations, angular frequency, and Q

The only thing I could think of was using Q=sqrt(6000/50)-1 = 10.9, which then gets me XL=545 and XC=550, or 96.4nH, and 0.32pF at resonance of 900Mhz. I tried seeing if Zin=Zout equation would bring me close, so I tried Z=545+(50-550)=45, then XL for 38.5nH was 217.7, and XC for 2.4pF was 74. Of course Z=217+(50-74) equals 193. so 45 does not equal 193. but then I realized there was an absorption method for the stray capacitance inherent in the diodes. totaling roughly 0.36pF for 0.18pF each diode. So from here I tried calculating the two capacitance I had as if they were in parallel, giving me around 0.68pF total. With an XL of 220, and XC of 260 I tried Z=220+(50-260)=10. Closer, but not quite. The full research paper I am referencing doing my homework on: https://www.aimspress.com/article/id/274
