Question

A radio can be tuned into a particular station frequency by
adjusting the capacitance in an *L-C* circuit. Suppose that
the minimum capacitance of a variable capacitor in a radio is 4.19
pFpF .

a. What is the inductance LLL of a coil connected to this
capacitor if the oscillation frequency of the *L*-*C*
circuit is 1.58 MHzMHz , corresponding to one end of the AM radio
broadcast band, when the capacitor is set to its minimum
capacitance?

b. The frequency at the other end of the broadcast band is 0.541 MHzMHz . What is the maximum capacitance CmaxCmaxC_max of the capacitor if the oscillation frequency is adjustable over the range of the broadcast band?

Answer #1

A. In LC circuit frequency is given by

XL = XC

wL = 1/wC

w = 2*pi*f

f = 1/(2*pi*sqrt (LC))

when f = 1.58 MHz = 1.58*10^6 Hz

C = 4.19 pF = 4.19*10^-12 F

then inductance, L = ?

L = 1/(4*pi^2*f^2*C)

L = 1/[(4*3.14^2*(1.58*10^6)^2*4.19*10^-12]

**L = 2.42*10^-3 H = 2.42 mH = Inductance of
coil**

B.

for maximum capacitance:

Now on the other end, frequency = 0.541 MHz = 0.541*10^6 Hz

L = 2.42*10^-3 H

C = 1/((2*pi*f)^2*L)

C = 1/[(2*3.14*0.541*10^6)^2*2.42*10^-3]

**C = 35.8*10^-12 F = 35.8 pF**

**Let me know if you've any query.**

To receive AM radio, you want an RLC circuit that can
be made to resonate at any frequency between 500 and 1650 kHz. This
is accomplished with a fixed 9.94 µH inductor connected to a
variable capacitor. What range of capacitance (in nF) is
needed?
smallest value ________ nF
largest value _________ nF

In a series L-R-C circuit connected to an alternating current
generator whose maximum voltage is 205 V, the resistance is 51.0 Ω
and the capacitance is 6.22 μF . The inductance L can be varied
from 2.0 mH to 40.0 mH by adjusting an iron core in the solenoid of
the inductor. The angular frequency ω of the generator is 3550
rad/s. If the capacitor voltage is not to exceed 145 V, find the
maximum and minimum inductance, Lmax and...
