The Q of the circuit can be determined by transposing the formula for bandwidth to:
To find the Q of the circuit using the information found in the last example problem:
Q-12. What is the relationship of the coil to the resistance of a circuit with high "Q"?
Q-13. What is the band of frequencies called that is included between the two points at which current
falls to 70 percent of its maximum value in a resonant circuit?
In many practical applications of complex circuits, various combinations of direct, low-frequency,
audio-frequency, and radio-frequency currents may exist. It is frequently necessary to have a means for
separating these component currents at any desired point. An electrical device for accomplishing this
separation is called a FILTER.
A filter circuit consists of inductance, capacitance, and resistance used singularly or in combination,
depending upon the purpose. It may be designed so that it will separate alternating current from direct
current, or so that it will separate alternating current of one frequency (or a band of frequencies) from
other alternating currents of different frequencies.
