Homework Help: RLC series circuit question

  1. Mar 25, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The problem says for each RLC series circuit, determine R0 and Q in each case and the magnitudes of the node voltages indicated. Take note that the circuits are being driven at their resonant frequencies.

    here is the circuits for the problem

    3. The attempt at a solution
    i have solved the r0 and q for each circuit with the following answers

    for part a
    Ro=500 ohm and q=5
    for part b
    R0=400 ohm and q=4

    my question comes with finding the magnitude of the node voltages. i have tried thumbing through my notes and have found this equation


    i'm not even sure this is the right equation and the book is no help because my teacher doesn't even teach from it or reference it. i just need a little guidance on these problem cause this is due tom
