there are a couple question on a lab report that I don't quite understand:

Thanks

the circuit and the data attached:

The question is asking about Xi (probably the reactance of an inductor). Your circuit has no hint of an Xi, regardless of what it is.

That's what I thought too, guess my tutor made a typo or I missed something

Assuming Xi is an inductor.

When,

$| j\omega L| = |\frac{-j}{\omega C}|$

$\omega_{o} = \frac{1}{\sqrt{LC}}$

Where $\omega_{o} = 2 \pi f_{o}$ is the resonance frequency in rad/s. ($f_{o}$ is the resonant frequency in Hz)
