At resonant condition.

XL = XC @ resonant frequency.

Resonant frequency more if XL>XC and less if XL<XC.

Here it is more and it means XL is high and hence L is high (XL = 360FL).

L always takes lags the current.

Hence the current lags the applied voltage.

AT RESONANT CONDITION

XL=XC @ RESONANT FREQUENCY

RESONANT FREQUENCY MORE IF XL>XC AND LESS IF XL<XC

HERE IT IS MORE AND IT MEANS XL IS HIGH AND HENCE L IS HIGH (XL=360FL)

L ALWAYS TAKES LAGS THE CURRENT

HENCE THE CURRENT LAGS THE APPLIED VOLTAGE

Resonant frequency(fr) = 1/(2 * 3.14 * (LC)1/2,
Take that root.
Given that RLC circuit is above the fr then we know XL > XC in case fr is more then current must be low and that case current should be lags by applied voltage.

according to the graph of resonance, above resonant frequency, inductive reactance is more than capacitive reactance, so net is inductive and thus the current lags applied voltage

At frequencies above the resonance frequency the series RLC circuit. Behaves as an inductive load (evident from equivalent impedance equation) hence current will lag.

At resonant frequency, (Xl=Xc).

Above resonant frequency, (Xl>Xc).

Below resonant frequency (Xl<Xc).

The reactive voltage VL and VC, does it cancel each other at resonance? Can anyone explain?

Above resonance frequency current lags voltage because at this situation XL>XC.

At resonance, Xl =XC. Thus there no phase angle. Therefore; no lug or lead.

Resonant frequency XL>XC. So current lags the applied voltage.
