Question 12: NCERT Solutions for 12th Class Physics: Chapter 7-Alternating Current

An LC circuit contains a 20 mH inductor and a 50 μF capacitor with initial charge of 10 mC. The resistance of the circuit in negligible. Let the instant the circuit is closed be t = 0.

**(a)** What is the total energy stored initially? Is it conserved during LC oscillations?

**(b)** What is the natural frequency of the circuit?

**(c)** At what time is the energy stored

- completely electrical (i.e., stored in the capacitor)?
- completely magnetic (i.e., stored in the inductor)?

**(d)** At what times is the total energy shared equally between the inductor and capacitor?

**(e)** If a resistor is inserted in the circuit, how much energy is eventually dissipated as heat?
