So I'm trying to get my head around RLC circuits and what is happening(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

say we have a 10 ohm resistor, 1000uf capacitor and a 10H inductor in a circuit powered by a 10 volt source.

Is the resulting oscillation of the sine wave frequency the result of the inductor resisting the flow of electrons(for a fraction of a second if even) and the capacitor spilling some of its excess charge to compensate for this delay to keep the circuit powered??
