If it would be the question regarding series RLC resonance circuit then the bandwidth of the circuit should be R/L. Here the question is not clear.

BW = R/(2*Pi*L)

Whats this Pi in last formula?

Will there be no effect of capacitor on the bandwidth?

Q=1/R*(L/C)^1/2
f=1/(2*pi*(LC)^1/2)
BW=f/Q

BW= 1/[Q*(2*3.14*(LC)^0.5]

FOR SERIES CIRCUIT Q FACTOR=1/R*(C/L)^1/2
F=1/92*PI*(LC)^1/2
BW=F/Q

BW=f/Q
=R/(2*pi*L) (since Q=(2*pi*L)f/R)

BW = f/Q.

Q = (1/R)(L/C)^1/2.

= 127.65.

f = 1/2*3.14*(L/C)^1/2.

= 1385265.971
