There are 5 lessons in this physics tutorial covering **The Series RLC Circuit**. The tutorial starts with an introduction to **The Series RLC Circuit** and is then followed with a list of the separate lessons, the tutorial is designed to be read in order but you can skip to a specific lesson or return to recover a specific physics lesson as required to build your physics knowledge of **The Series RLC Circuit**. you can access all the lessons from this tutorial below.

In this Physics tutorial, you will learn:

- Why the maximum voltage in a series RLC circuit is not the arithmetic sum of maximum voltages in each component?
- How can we use the help of phasors to understand how a series RLC circuit works?
- What is the phase relationship between current and voltage across the resistor in a series RLC circuit?
- The same for the inductor and capacitor in series RLC circuits
- What is the impedance of an electrical circuit? What is its unit?
- What is phase constant? How can we calculate it?
- What is resonance? What does the phase constant tells us about resonance in a RLC circuit?
- What are the effective (rms) values of current and voltage in an alternating circuit? How to calculate them?

In the previous tutorial, we discussed about some general features of RLC circuits such as the induced current and voltage or energy in such circuits. In addition, we gave the definition of inductive and capacitive reactance, which were analogue to the resistance provided by resistors.

In this tutorial, we will extend the study of RLC circuits in the interaction between components, especially in regard to the total resistance of the circuit. In addition, we will provide the equations of current amplitude and other quantities not discussed so far.
