**Summary:**Series RLC and Parallel RLC circuits

How can the voltage across a capacitor or inductor in a series RLC circuit be greater than the applied AC source voltage? The formula suggest that either can be larger than the source voltage but I still find it counter intuitive.

Also for Parallel RLC, how can the current of anyone branch can be larger than the AC source current?

Please explain to me the mechanism as to how these phenomenon are possible. THANK YOU!
