As in resonace impedance equal to resistance

Current = 60/24 = 2.5

Vtg across inductor = 120*2.5 = 300V

Current = 60/24 = 2.5

Vtg across inductor = 120*2.5 = 300V

i = v/r.

= 24/60 = 0.4 right.

= 24/60 = 0.4 right.

When circuit is at resonance then inductor have effect an circuit the voltage drop across inductor is zero? I think.

The circuit is resonance so inductive reactance is equal to capacitive reactance so only resistor active circuit is voltage is 60v.

Yes, you are right @Veerababu.

But how can the voltage across inductor is grater than the voltage of battery?

Manju said:

Voltage across inductor becomes +300v at same time voltage across the capacitor becomes -300v so both get cancel each other, and only voltage drop across are. But +300v is present across inductor at any instant, compared over all circuit voltage is 60v for inductor only its 300v.

Good one, thanks @Manju.

The voltage across the inductor is Vl = I Xl, that is total current in the circuit multiplied with inductive reactance.

Series resonance circuit as VL = -VC the resulting reactive voltages are zero and all the supply voltage is dropped across the resistor. Therefore, VR = V supply and it is for this reason that series resonance circuits are known as voltage resonance circuits. So option A that is 60 v.
