Resonant Voltages

Author: J.B. Hoag

At resonance, the voltage across the inductance is numerically equal to that across the condenser, although they are always of opposite polarity. This voltage, at resonance, is equal to Q times the voltage in series with the circuit. The condenser must be built with an insulator which will not be punctured by this voltage.
