Hi I am newbie here! I understand why capacitive reactance reduces inductive reactance mathematically, having a result of zero at resonant frequency. But how to physically explain the flow of electrons in a series LC circuit, where the coil lags the flow of current (electrons) relative to the applied voltage. How can the capacitor counteract this? By reducing the coil's back EMF? I assume, that if coil blocks electrons flow (current), capacitor can`t counteract it, especially when there is no voltage on its terminals. As the voltage of the power source increases, the first thing it encounters is a coil that prevents it from flowing current. How can the capacitor counteract this, if from the point of view of the power source it is a short circuit at the very beginning? Thank in advance for any explanation.
