    How do you determine the resonant frequency of a circuit which has 3 inductors in series, each having the same value?

    Is the resonant frequency calculated by adding all inductances and then calculating resonance. Or is the resonant frequency the calculation of only 1 inductor?

    What if the inductors are different values?

    What effect does having more than 1 inductor in a series resonant circuit have on the waveform if the applied pulse were a square wave and a diode is used to prevent the current flow from reversing when the field collapses?

    Without capacitance, there can be no resonance. 3 inductors in series is additive, each inductance is added to make a total.
