## Challenge

32. A parallel resonant circuit has a required \(f_0\) of 50 kHz and a bandwidth of 4 kHz. If a 75 nF capacitor is used and the load impedance is 100 k\(\Omega\), determine the required inductance and minimum acceptable \(Q_{coil}\).

34. A resonant circuit consists of a 4 nF capacitor in parallel with a 100 \(\mu\)H coil that has a coil resistance of 5 \(\Omega\). Determine the resonant frequency and bandwidth. Further, assume that this circuit is now loaded by an amplifier that has an input impedance equivalent to 10 k\(\Omega\) resistive in parallel with 500 pF of input capacitance. Also, the amplifier is connected via 25 feet of coaxial cable that exhibits a capacitance of 33 pF per foot. Determine the changes in resonant frequency and bandwidth, if any, with this load.

## Simulation

35. Use an AC frequency domain analysis to verify the results of problem 13. Plot the resistor voltage from 0.1 \(f_0\) to 10 \(f_0\).

36. Use an AC frequency domain analysis to verify the results of problem 19. Do this by overlapping plots of the resistor, capacitor and inductor voltages across a range of 0.1 \(f_0\) to 10 \(f_0\).

37. Investigate the effects of inductor \(Q\) on the system bandwidth of problem 21. Plot the system voltage from 0.01 \(f_0\) to 100 \(f_0\) three times, the first using the specified coil resistance and then using values ten times larger and ten times smaller.

38. Investigate the effects of component tolerance on the system frequency response of problem 21. Plot the system voltage from 0.1 \(f_0\) to 10 \(f_0\) using a Monte Carlo variation on the AC frequency domain response. Set a 10% tolerance on the capacitor, inductor and resistor but do not alter the coil resistance.

39. Use an AC frequency domain analysis to verify the design of problem 27. Plot the resistor voltage from 0.1 \(f_0\) to 10 \(f_0\).

40. Use an AC frequency domain analysis to verify the design of problem 29. Plot the system voltage from 0.1 \(f_0\) to 10 \(f_0\).

41. At high \(Q\) values (>10) the capacitor and inductor voltages of series resonant circuits will tend to reach maximum very close to the resonant frequency. At lower \(Q\)s, these peaks tend to diverge. A similar situation occurs with the currents in parallel resonant circuits. Investigate this effect by performing an AC frequency domain analysis on problem 14. Overlay plots of \(v_{ab}\), \(v_{bc}\) and \(v_c\) for successively larger values of resistance.

42. Investigate the “\(Q\) increase” in reactive currents compared to source and resistive currents in a parallel resonant circuit. A simple way to verify this is by placing AC ammeters in each of the branches of the circuit shown in Figure \(\PageIndex{13}\). Use \(R\) = 630 \(\Omega\), \(C\) = 40 nF, \(L\) = 10 \(\mu\)H and \(i\) = 1 mA. It is worthwhile to compare sets of simulations for different resistor values to see the current changes relative to the system \(Q\). Slight variations of the source frequency may be required to reach the peak.
