(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] Radios for a layman

I'm trying to somehow wrap my mind around how a simple radio works, but I've run into some problems at the tank circuit, what it does, and how it works.

The various resources I've tried to get answers from don't seem to be able to discuss this part of a radio without introducing numerous mathematical equations for capacitance and indictance, so I was wondering if anyone could explain, in layman's terms, how a tank circuit works in the context of a radio?
