For a series LC circuit the Q I believe is Q= 1/R^(L/C). I have a 1.923 Henry inductor and a 4.4uF cap. The resistance in the inductor is 52.5 ohms. The answer I got was 111.86.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know the circuit can't have a Q of that value. Where did I go wrong?
