  • 4.16. INDUCTOR-CAPACITOR ”TANK” CIRCUIT1914.16Inductor-capacitor ”tank” circuitPARTS AND MATERIALS• Oscilloscope• Assortment of non-polarized capacitors (0.1 µF to 10 µF)• Step-down power transformer (120V / 6 V)• 10 kΩ resistors• Six-volt batteryThe power transformer is used simply as an inductor, with only one winding connected. Theunused winding should be left open. A simple iron core, single-winding inductor (sometimesknown as a choke) may also be used, but such inductors are more difficult to obtain than powertransformers.CROSS-REFERENCESLessons In Electric Circuits, Volume 2, chapter 6: ”Resonance”LEARNING OBJECTIVES• How to build a resonant circuit• Effects of capacitor size on resonant frequency• How to produce antiresonanceSCHEMATIC DIAGRAMLCILLUSTRATION
