SERIES RLC CIRCUIT

A Series RLC circuit obeys the differential equation

Lq” + Rq’+q/C = V_{0}e^{iωt}

In this applet you can change the values of L (in millihenrys), R (in
ohms), V_{0} (in volts) and C (in millifarads) and f (which is
ω/(2π)) by using the corresponding sliders or by
clicking on the adjacent circles with arrows.

The steady state response amplitude of q here called Q_{0}
(in tenths of a coulomb) (green) and of its current q´ denoted here
by I_{0} (in amperes) (red) are pictured along with
V_{0}, in blue.

Below the sliders the amplitudes I_{0} and Q_{0} of
current and charge, the ratio of current and voltage amplitudes |z| ,
the phase difference (in degrees) between the current I and voltage V,
and the resonance frequency f_{0} are given for the settings
you choose.
