(a) The resonant frequency is

ω_{0} = \frac{1}{\sqrt{LC}} = \frac{1}{\sqrt{10^{-3} × 0.4 × 10^{-6}}} = 50 krad/s

■ METHOD 1 The lower half-power frequency is

ω_{1} = – \frac{R}{2L} + \sqrt{(\frac{R}{2L})^{2} + \frac{1}{LC}}

= – \frac{2}{2 × 10^{-3}} + \sqrt{(10^{3})^{2} + (50 × 10^{3})^{2}}

= – 1 + \sqrt{1 + 2500} krad/s = 49 krad/s

Similarly, the upper half-power frequency is

ω_{2} = 1 + \sqrt{ 1 + 2500} krad/s = 51 krad/s

(b) The bandwidth is

B = ω_{2} – ω_{1} = 2 krad/s

or

B = \frac{R}{L} = \frac{2}{10^{-3}} = 2 krad/s

The quality factor is

Q = \frac{ω_{0}}{B} = \frac{50}{2} = 25

■ METHOD 2 Alternatively, we could find

Q = \frac{ω_{0}L}{R} = \frac{50 × 10^{3} × 10^{-3}}{2} = 25

From Q, we find

B = \frac{ω_{0}}{Q} = \frac{50 × 10^{3}}{25} = 2 krad/s

Since Q > 10 , this is a high-Q circuit and we can obtain the halfpower frequencies as

ω_{1} = ω_{0} – \frac{B}{2} = 50 – 1 = 49 krad/s

ω_{2} = ω_{0} – \frac{B}{2} = 50 + 1 = 51 krad/s

as obtained earlier.

(c) At ω = ω_{0} ,

I = \frac{V_{m}}{R} = \frac{20}{2} = 10 A

At ω = ω_{1} , ω_{2} ,

I = \frac{V_{m}}{\sqrt{2}R} = \frac{10}{\sqrt{2}} = 7.071 A
