Back In “radio science”, ‘Q’ stands for Quality factor. In a simple resonant or tuned circuit, (and indeed also in a single inductor or capacitor), Q is conveniently summarised as “the component’s reactance divided by the component’s resistance”. The higher the Q, the lower the loss in the component’s resistance. (In most tuned circuits it […]
