Electrical Resonance

In the last article, we saw how the voltage and current will either pulse or oscillate depending on the resistance. We called these two circumstances the oscillating case and the impulse case, respectively. In this article we will explore oscillating current in more detail.

Let's lower the resistance to achieve a more sustained oscillation.

Suppose the battery is 12 volts, the resistance of the resistor is 0.1 ohm, the inductance of the inductor is 1 henry, and the capacitance of the capacitor is 1 farad.
