(a)     In a series LCR circuit connected across an ac source of variable frequency, obtain the expression for its impedance and draw a plot showing its variation with frequency of the ac source.

(b) What is the phase difference between the voltages across the inductor and the capacitor at resonance in the LCR circuit?

(c) When an inductor is connected to a 200\; V dc voltage, a current of 1\; A flows through it. When the same inductor is connected to a  200\; V,  50\; Hz ac source, only 0.5\; A current flows. Explain, why? Also, calculate the self-inductance of the inductor.

(a)     Let us consider,

     a resistance of resistance R, an inductor of inductance L, and a capacitor of capacitance C be connected in series across an ac source of frequency f.

We know that the potential difference across the resistor is given by :-

        V_{R}=IR\; \cos (wt)\; =\; V_{Rm}\; \cos (wt)

        V_{Rm}=IR

Now, Potential Difference across the capacitor is given by :-

        V_{c}=V_{cm}\; \cos\; (wt-\frac{\pi }{2})

 Where, V_{cm} is the maximum potential across the capacitor 

        V_{cm}=IX_{c}

        V_{Lm}=IX_{L}

Drawing the phasor diagram 

   

        V=\vec{V_{C}}+\vec{V_{L}}+\vec{V}_{R}

Thus, By adding it, we can obtain the potential difference across the three components.

    V^{2}_{m}=(V_{Lm}-V_{Cm})^{2}+V^{2}_{Rm}

On substituting, 

    V_{Rm}=IR,\; \; V_{Cm}=IX_{c} and V_{Lm}=IX_{L}

So, we get

        V^{2}_{m}=I^{2}(X_{L}-X_{C})^{2}+I^{2}R^{2}

        V^{2}_{m}=I^{2}\left [ (X_{L}-X_{C}) +R^{2}\right ]

        V_{m}=I\sqrt{(X_{L}-X_{C})^{2}+R^{2}}

        \frac{V_{m}}{I}=\sqrt{(X_{L}-X_{C})^{2}+R^{2}}

Impedance is explained as

 Z=\frac{V_{m}}{I}

Hence, 

        Z=\sqrt{(X_{L}-X_{C})^{2}+R^{2}}

(b) The phase difference between the voltage across inductor and capacitor is 180^{\circ}. This can be viewed in the phasor diagram.

(c) In the DC circuit, the resistance is given by:-

        R=\frac{V}{I}=\frac{200}{1}=200\Omega

When the inductor is connected to ac circuit an additional resistance is offered due to self-inductance of the circuit. 

The impedance

\\Z=\frac{V}{I}=\frac{200}{0.5}=400\Omega\\\\\sqrt{X_L^2+R^2}=400\Omega\\\\\Rightarrow X_L^2=120000\\\\X_L=346.41\Omega\\\\2\pi fL=200\\\\L=\frac{346.41}{100\pi}H=0.64H=1.1H
