So I was playing in NI, with RLC circuits, trying to understand resonance, and what causes it etc.

What I did is following:

I connected an RLC circuit to a function generator, where I can change my frequency.

What I found, that at some frequencies capacitor voltage was above the voltage source's voltage.

I couldn't explain that at that moment but then I realized I saw this somewhere.

This overvoltage and undervoltage as I call it, I do not understand. Why does this happen at specific frequency both for capacitor and inductor? I cannot find the google solution for this as I don't know the name of this phenomena in English.
