## Main Question or Discussion Point

I am simulating a series-parallel tank circuit in MATLAB. This means parallel resonance (inductor and capacitor in parallel) with an added capacitor in series. I would assume the resonance condition is w^2LC = 1 and the impedance is 1/(1/(z_L+z_R)+1/z_C1) + z_C2 with C1 being the parallel capacitor and C2 being the series capacitor.

The part where I am getting confused is why Fukushima Experimental Pulsed NMR (pg. 413) is telling me the resonance condition is close to w^2L(C1+C2) = 1. The capacitors are not in parallel so this makes no sense to me.

It is apparent that C2 has no contribution to resonance, it simply cancels reactance. What am I missing here?

Thank you!
