    What is the difference between Z and ESR?


    Thanks,

    May you explain more exactly what do you mean?
    'Cause i don't understand what are you talking about. It's Z impedance?

    and when you say ESR, do you mean Effective Series Resistance?

    Sorry to be ambiguous. Series combination of a resister and inductor connected in series with the parallel combination of a resister and a cap.

    How would I calculate equivalent series resistance, and the impedance of this ckt. How do they differ, what contributes to what?

    Thanks
