hi there..in some places, i saw the usage "the Q factor of parallel LC tank ckt" while in some others, the Q factor of the inductor used in tank ckt is given..are they same??(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As far as i know,Q=wL/R is the thing for inductor ,where R is inductor's series resistance..is the formula same for the entire parallel tank ckt??

Also, i would like to know why, during analysis, do we convert series R of inductor to parallel resistance by formula, Rp =R/Q^2 ??
