Inductive reactance magnitude XL increases as frequency increases while capacitive reactance magnitude XC decreases with the increase in frequency. At one particular frequency, these two reactances are equal in magnitude but opposite in sign; that frequency is called the resonant frequency f0 for the given circuit.

Hence, at resonance:

X L = X C means net voltage is zero.
