hooked up to a parallel capacitor and inductor with winding resistance.

Now in my book, all the examples use a current source with parallel

restance as opposed to the voltage source with series resistance. I

can find the resonant frequency and transform the inductor with winding

resistance to an inductor with parallel resistance. But when I go to

find the total impedance of the circuit by adding up the two resistors

(which I assume are in series) I don't get the correct answer.

Transforming the voltage source with series resistance to a current

source doesn't seem to work either. It would seem to change the Q of

the circuit. Here is a feable attempt at a picture...

----R--------------

------------------

My goal is to find the total impedance, Q, and then the Bandwidth.

Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks.
