    In a parallel RLC circuit, what will happen to Q if you increase the resistance across the LC combination from 10 ohms to 10 megohms?

    Hello,

    The Q factor will be much higher with the 10M than with the 10 Ohms.
    The 10 Ohms will "damp" the circuit much more.
    With the 10 M resistor it could even lead to "ringing".
