Kind of new to this stuff, so hopefully you guys will bear with me.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So a simple Oscillator with a Capacitor and Inductor...

I understand that the energy flow causes the inductor to generate and collapse a magnetic field.

I also understand that Sine waves are generated by changing the electric current in a wire, so a voltage from 0 volts to 10 volts back to 0 volts etc.

How exactly does the energy flow in an oscillator alter the voltage in the circuit wires?

Where are these sine waves being generated, and how are they transmitted?
