The Standard Electrical Dictionary
In electrical resonance the period of a vibration in an electrical resonator. The length of this period indicates the quality of the resonator in responding to electrical oscillations by sympathetic vibration. For conductors of small resistance the period is thus calculated. Let T be the period of one-half a full vibration; L the absolute coefficient of self-induction expressed in centimeters or in henries X 10-9; C the electrostatic capacity of the terminals, also expressed in the same unit; v the velocity of light in centimeters per second. Then we have the formula T = PI * SquareRoot( L * C ) / v [Transcriber's note: If the inductance is in henries and the capacitance in farads, frequency in hertz = 1/(2 * PI * squareRoot( L * C ) )]
