# Answer the following question. An applied voltage signal consists of a superposition of a voltage and an ac voltage of high frequency. The circuit consists of an inductor and a capacitor in series.

Q 7.22 (c)  Answer the following questions:

An applied voltage signal consists of a superposition of a $dc$  voltage and an ac voltage of high frequency. The circuit consists of an inductor and a capacitor in series. Show that the dc signal will appear across $C$ and the ac signal across $L$.

For a high frequency, the inductive reactance and capacitive reactance:

$X_L=wL=Large \:value\: And \:X_C = \frac{1}{wC}=Very\:small$

Hence the capacitor does not offer resistance to a higher frequency, so the ac voltage appears across L.

Similarly

For DC, the inductive reactance and capacitive reactance:

$X_L=wL=Very\:small\: And \:X_C = \frac{1}{wC}=Large \:value$

Hence DC signal appears across Capacitor only.
