Finding the capacitance for a wanted resonant frequency when the inductance is known:

The above formula
‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾
1 ⎛ R ⎞2
ω0 = ――− ⎜―⎟
L⋅C ⎝ L ⎠

Squaring on both sides
1 ⎛ R ⎞2
⇒ ω0 2 = ――− ⎜―⎟
L⋅C ⎝L⎠

Subtracting two terms one on each side of the equal sign and
1 ⎛ R ⎞2
⇒ ――= ω0 2 + ⎜―⎟
L⋅C ⎝L⎠ negating it all

Multiplying by C on both sides
1 ⎛ R2 ⎞
⇒ ―= L ⋅ ⎜ω0 2 + ―― ⎟
