Problem: At a frequency ω 1 the resistance of a certain capacitor equals that of a certain inductor.a. If the frequency is changed to ω 2=2ω 1, what is the ratio of the reactance of the inductor to that of the capacitor? What reactance is larger?b. If the frequency is changed to ω 3=ω 1/3, what is the ratio of the reactance of the inductor to that of the capacitor? Which reactance is larger?c. If the capacitor and inductor are placed in series with a resistor of resistance R to form a series L-R-C circuit, what will be the resonance angular frequency of the circuit?
