# Q-factor and resonant frequency

This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the solution, here!

The Q-factor of a resonance circuit is defined as the ratio of the voltage across the capacitor (or inductor) to the voltage across the resistor, at resonance. The larger the Q-factor, the sharper the resonance curve will be and the sharper the tuning. Show that the Q-factor is given by the equation: (see attachment). At resonant frequency fo = 1 MHz, what must be the value of L and R to produce a Q-factor of 1000? Assume that C = 0.01 uF
