1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Determine the resonant frequency of the circuit in Fig 14.28 (See attached)

2. Relevant equations

$$\begin{array}{l} {\rm{How is }} \to {\omega _0}0.1 - \frac{{2{\omega _0}}}{{4 + 4\omega _0^2}} \\ {\rm{derived from }} \to j{\omega _0}0.1 + \frac{{2 - j{\omega _0}}}{{4 + 4{\omega ^2}}} \\ \end{array}$$

I'm sure this is not difficult but I just can't see it.

You consider just the two terms with a "j" in them. I've corrected where you omitted a "2".

Still can't see it.

One of the terms with a j in it is jω0.1

What is the other term with a j in it?

The other term is -j2w. I still cant see how this helps.

That's only the numerator; what is its denominator?

How's this? I new it was simple and the answer was already sitting there. It felt a bit like pulling teeth.

Thanks for that.
