    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.

    Can someone tell me how to find the Quality factor of a loaded resonant circuit?

    PLEASEEEEEEEEEEthanks a lot.
