There are two fundamental parameters that describe the behavior of RLC circuits: the resonant frequency and the damping factor. In addition, other parameters derived from these first two are discussed below.

**Resonant frequency:**

The undamped resonance or natural frequency of an RLC circuit (in radians per second) is:

In the more familiar unit hertz, the natural frequency becomes

for a parallel RLC circuit is

**Derived Parameters**

**Bandwidth:**

The RLC circuit may be used as a bandpass or band-stop filter by replacing R with a receiving device with the same input resistance, and the bandwidth (in radians per second) is

Alternatively, the bandwidth in hertz is

Alternatively, the bandwidth in hertz is

The bandwidth is a measure of the width of the frequency response at the two half-power frequencies. As a result, this measure of bandwidth is sometimes called the full-width at half-power. Since electrical power is proportional to the square of the circuit voltage (or current), the

**Quality or Q factor :**

The Quality of the series tuned circuit, or Q factor, is calculated as the ratio of the resonance frequency ωo to the bandwidth Δω (in radians per second):

Or in hertz:

Or in hertz:

For the parallel tuned circuit:

Q is a dimensionless quantity.
