A circuit with a resistor, inductor, and capacitor in series has a resonant frequency of fo Hz. If all the component values are now doubled, the new resonant frequency is

#### SOLUTION

The resonant frequency for series R-L-C circuit is given by

${f_o} = dfrac{1}{{2pi sqrt {LC} }}$——(1)

Now inductor and capacitor value is doubled the above equation becomes

${f_1} = dfrac{1}{{2pi sqrt {2L times 2C} }}$——(2)

Dividing equation 2 from 1 we get

$begin{array}{l}dfrac{{{f_1}}}{{{f_o}}} = dfrac{1}{{4pi sqrt {LC} }} times 2pi sqrt {LC} \\{f_1} = dfrac{{{f_o}}}{2}end{array}$
