Did you get it right?:

Section 1 - Essential Basics of the Tutorial:-

1 (a). L/C - basics:-

1. What is the L/C for the following frequencies;
(a) 455Khz (b) 7224 Khz and (c) 9 Mhz.

Answers:(a) 122,354 (b) 485.38 and (c) 312.72

2. What capacitor will resonate at the above respective frequencies with the following respective inductors ;
(a) 679 uH (b) 22uH and (c) 3.81 uH.

Answers: (a) 180pF (b) 22pF and (c) 82pF

3. What is the resonant frequency for the following L/C (inductor - capacitor) combinations to the nearest Khz;
(a) 2,533,030 (b) 116,716 (c) 312.72 and (d) 2.53303.

Answers: (a) 100 Khz (b) 466 Khz (c) 9 Mhz and (d) 100 Mhz

Back to L/C .
