± A Voltage-Driven Parallel L-C Circuit
An AC source that provides a voltage drives an inductor having inductance and a capacitor having
capacitance , all connected in parallel.
Part A
Recall that the currents and through the inductor and capacitor are not in phase with their respectivevoltages and . In particular, for a sinusoidal voltage driver, which of the following statements is true?
and both lag their respective voltages.and both lead their respective voltages.leads and lags .lags and leads .CorrectThe phase angle between voltage and current for inductors and capacitors is radians. Among other things, thismeans that no power is dissipated in either, since the time-averaged product of current and voltage (= power) iszero: .

Part C
With and representing the respective magnitudes of the currents through the inductor and capacitor,which of the following statements is true?
At very high frequency and at very low frequency .At very high frequency and at very low frequency .for all frequencies.for all frequencies.and are about the same at all frequencies.Correct
Part D
circuit is one example of a system that can exhibit resonance behavior. The resonant frequency is. At this frequency, what is the amplitude of the current supplied by the voltage source?Express your answer in terms of and any other need terms from the problem introduction.
Part E
Which of the following statements best describes the implications of the result that when ?
The currents ; ; are zero at all times.The current is zero at all times although and are not.The current is zero only when the voltage is zero.The current is zero only when the amplitude of the voltage is not changing.CorrectAt the resonant frequency of the circut, the voltage source can supply voltage easily because the parallel
 circuit draws no current at all! (For this reason, a parallel
circuit can be used as a filter to pass signals at theresonance frequency.) Of course, the same current flows in the inductor and the capacitor as the current thatflows when they are driven separately by the voltage source. However, the currents are exactly out of phase, sothat the net effect is a current circulating around the loop made by the capacitor and the inductor without passinginto or out of the voltage source.
Alternating Current, LC circuit
A capacitor with capacitance is connected in parallel to two inductors: inductor 1 with inductance , and inductor2 with inductance , as shown in the figure. The capacitor is charged up to a voltage , at which point it has a
