A simple example of a series connection of a resistor, an inductor and a capacitor as depicted in Fig. 1 should be explained in the following. For various frequencies, the voltage drops across the resistor, the inductor and the capacitor should be determined.
The voltage drop across the resistor
and the inductor
and the capacitor
add up to the total voltage
as illustrated in the phasor diagram of Fig. 2.
Due to the series connection of the resistor, inductor and capacitor, the three currents are all equal:
