Question
An $LC$ circuit containing a 2.00-H inductor oscillates at such a frequency that it radiates at a 1.00-m wavelength. (a) What is the capacitance of the circuit? (b) What is unreasonable about this result? (c) Which assumptions are unreasonable or inconsistent?
1. $1.41 \times 10^{-19} \textrm{ F}$
2. This is an unreasonably small capacitance.
3. Either wavelength is too small or inductance is too large.
