# Obtain the resonant frequency and varrho-factor of a series LCR circuit.

Q7.21 Obtain the resonant frequency and $\varrho$-factor of a series $LCR$  circuit  with $L=0.3H$, $C=27\mu F$, and $R=7.4\Omega$ . It is desired to improve the sharpness of the resonance of the circuit by reducing its ‘full width at half maximum’ by a factor of 2. Suggest a suitable way.

The inductance of the inductor $L=0.3H$

The capacitance of the capacitor $C=27\mu F$

The resistance of the resistor $R=7.4\Omega$

Now,

Resonant frequency

$w_r=\frac{1}{\sqrt{LC}}=\frac{1}{\sqrt{0.3*27*10^{-6}}}=111.11rad/sec$

Q-Factor of the circuit

$Q=\frac{w_rL}{R}=\frac{111.11*0.3}{7.4}=45.0446$

Now, to improve the sharpness of resonance by reducing its full width at half maximum, by a factor of 2 without changing$w_r$,

we have to change the resistance of the resistor to half of its value, that is

$R_{new}=\frac{R}{2}=\frac{7.4}{2}=3.7\Omega$
