    Hi all

    I read that Q,the quality factor of series resonant circuits is wL/R
    ------------>1/R sqrt(L/C).This i understand

    1.but for parallel resonant it is R/wL....hmm but why is that?this i don quite get.

    2.Then what do u mean by loaded resonant circuit and unloaded resonant circuit?

    I hope to hear from u guys.
    Thanx for ur time and help.

    Q is defined as the quotient of center frequency over bandwidth. From this definition follow the different formulas for parallel and series circuits.
