# Q7.17  Keeping the source frequency equal to the resonating frequency of the series  circuit, if the three elements, ,  and  are arranged in parallel, show that the total current in the parallel  circuit is minimum at this frequency. Obtain the current rms value in each branch of the circuit for the elements and source specified in Exercise 7.11 for this frequency.

As we know, in the case of a parallel RLC circuit:

The current will be minimum when

Which is also the condition of natural frequency. Hence the total current is minimum when source frequency is equal to the natural frequency.

RMS value of current in R

RMS value in Inductor

RMS value in capacitor

Capacitor current and inductor current will cancel out each other so the current flowing in the circuit is 5.75A.
