LRC Series Circuit

The phase differences between the output voltage, the voltage across the inductor, the voltage across the capacitor, and the voltage across the resistor will be examined at resonant frequency, and the half-power frequencies above and below resonance.

Phasor math is also used. The instantaneous voltages are also added to show that Kirchhoff's Loop Theorem is correct for this circuit. The formulas for the reactance are also verified.
