    a) What exactly is electrical resonance and how is it caused and what is
    it's result/effect?
    b) What exactly is thermal resonance and how is it caused and what is it's
    result/effect?

    Thanks

    If we had a heat powered refrigerator operating with its evaporator
    discharging heat into the refrigerator and into the unit that vaporizes the
    refrigerant operating in balance, wouldn't this be thermal resonance?

    A state in which the capacitance and the inductance values in a circuit are
    equal (net reactance is equal to zero) and the only quantity left is
    resistance.

    research series resonant and parallel resonant (tank) circuits.

    the result/effect is a tuned circuit.

    beats me :) try alt.engineering.mechanical

    The way I learned this was:
    When XC = XL in a parallel LC circuit we have resonance and current travels
    back and forth between a capacitor and an inductor. This circuit has
    minimum impedance to a wave traveling at a resonance frequency found by:
    XC = 1 / 2 x pi x freq in hz x C in farads
    XL = 2 x pi x freq in hz x L in henries
    Set XL equal to XC and solve for the resonance frequency.

    f = 1 / (2 x pi x SQRT(LxC)

    It is all explained in detail at:
