One can often tell the type of filter by looking at behavior at very low
and very high frequencies and keeping in mind that capacitor offers
very high impedance at low frequencies and very low impedance at
high frequencies.

Amplitude Modulated (AM) Radio

Different radio channels are separated by very narrow frequency interval.

For example, one may want to receive a 450KHz signal but reject 460KHz or
440KHz
450KHz

460KHz

-60dB

This implies an attenuation of -6000 dB/decade !!
14
Series Resonant Circuit
Resonance is a condition in which capacitive and inductive
reactance cancel each other to give rise to a purely resistive
circuit

Resonant frequency:

Current and voltage are in phase (power factor is unity) and
current is maximum ! 15
1 and 2 are called half-power frequencies
since P I2

Quality (Q) factor: Sharpness of resonance

Hence Q represents sharpness of resonance

How much Q do we need to pass 450KHz but reject 460KHz by
60dB?

Assuming VIN = 1V and noting that Q = OL/R

For = O, VO = 1 so the signal simply passes

For an attenuation of -60dB or 10-3 at : Q=23,000

This is a large value of Q!
