    Inductive reactance increases with frequency (2PiƒL), while capacitive reactance decreases with frequency (1/2PiƒC). That’s why there’s only one frequency where a given inductor and capacitor in a circuit will cancel each other’s reactance. ƒ has no effect on resistance.

    Question 425

    What is the formula for frequency of a tank circuit. [Give both forms!]
     
  3. AE4FA

    ƒ = 1/2Pi(SQRT LC) and ƒr = 1/2Pi(SQRT LC). There are some others, too, with some small modification of the way “resonant frequency” is designated.

    That’s probably not what you meant, though. There’s a shortcut that involves substituting the actual value of 1/2Pi, since it never changes – it’s always 0.159.

    So, the second form of the formula becomes ƒr = 0.159/(SQRT LC).

    Okay, got lost in the notation – again. Harry knows that’s a weak point with me. Let’s try this:

    ƒr = 1/(2Pi*(sqrt(L)*(sqrt&copy;))

    And, substituting 0.159 for 1/(2Pi):

    ƒr = 0.159/(sqrt(L)*sqrt&copy;)

    Note: Use square brackets to avoid the dumb icon junk on the board... ie. f = 0.159 / sqrt[L * C]

    Question 426

    If you have a tank circuit with a 0.01 uF cap and a .01 mH choke what would the resonate frequency be?

    ƒr = 0.159/[sqrt[L]*sqrt[C]]
    ƒr = 0.159/[sqrt[10*10^-6]*sqrt[10*10^-9]] = 502802Hz
    ƒr = 502.8Khz
     
  7. AE4FA

    AE4FA Ham Member QRZ Page

    ƒr = 0.159/[sqrt[L]*sqrt[C]]
    ƒr = 0.159/[sqrt[10*10^-6]*sqrt[10*10^-9]] = 502802Hz
    ƒr = 502.8Khz
    And
    ƒr = 1/[2Pi*[sqrt [L]*[sqrt [C]]] = 503290.9
    ƒr = 1/(6.28*[sqrt[10*10^-6]*sqrt[10*10^-9]]] = 503290.9
    ƒr = 503.3Khz
    So, let’s round it to 503000Hz or 503kHz

    That’s probably a better answer.

    Question 427

    If a tank circuit has a given resonant frequency will X be capacitive or inductive as frequency goes up? as frequency goes down? Why?
     
  9. AE4FA

    AE4FA Ham Member QRZ Page

    As ƒ increases, X will be more inductive. As ƒ decreases, X will be more capacitive.
    XL = 2PiƒL and XC = 1/2PiƒC
    Inductive reactance increases with frequency; Capacitive reactance decreases with frequency.

    Question 428

    As the input frequency goes away from the resonant frequency of a tank circuit what happens to voltage and current through the circuit? Why?
