## About LC Parallel Resonant Circuit Calculator

The above online calculator for **second order LC low pass filter** calculates the cutoff frequency and Q from given inductor, capacitor and load resistor values or calculate inductor, capacitor values from given cutoff frequency.

### Notes on Second Order LC Low Pass Filter Calculator

The Q of the filter is given by,\[Q=\frac{R}{X_L}\]where, the inductor reactance \(X_L\) is calculated at the resonant frequency. When Q is high the gain will increase and in frequency response graph we will see peak. The following graph illustrates frequency response of LPF when Q is high.

To get maximally flat response(Butterworth Response), Q should be 0.707 and at this Q=0.707 value the frequency response of the LC low pass filter will be like the following,Higher order LC LPF

The quality factor Q of the LC parallel tank is given by the following equation:

\(Q=\frac{Energy \space stored \space in \space Reactive \space component}{Energy \space dissipated}\)

or, \(Q=\frac{X_C}{R_w}=\frac{X_L}{R_w}\)
