- I am doing a calculus project and want to incorporate an engineering application. I have a question regarding measuring the efficiency of an inductor with the area under the sine wave for an LC Oscillator.

I want to create an LC circuit with varying inductors and compare those inductors for efficiency. Would it be accurate to suggest measuring the area under the curve of the first cycle of the resonant frequency would determine which of the inductors are most efficient? If the area is greater, then wouldn't that mean the inductor can induce more current into the circuit?

If not, how could I incorporate calculus to compare the efficiency of the inductors?

Thanks ahead of time!
