## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello,

my question this time is once again about parallel resonance. I cant really decipher this paragraph from my text:

'....the resistances of a parallel circuit are of signal importance in determining the frequency of resonance, even to the extent of making resonance either possible or impossible to attain. Physically this can be understood when it is remembered that, with a certain quadrature component of current in the capacitive branch, some sufficiently large value of R

Under such condition it is apparent that inserting inductance will do nothing but make the current in the inductive branch still smaller and hence

Okay, according to the bolded parts, how come the currents blocked by R

And second, isn't the current minimal during parallel resonance anyways? So what does that (second bolded) line mean then?

Thank you

_{L}will prevent a resultant current in the inductive branch from flowing, which is as much as the quadrature current in the capacitive branch**even when the inductance is zero.**Under such condition it is apparent that inserting inductance will do nothing but make the current in the inductive branch still smaller and hence
