# Derivation of LC impedance transformation formula

Apologies in advance for this esoteric question (and source). I've been studying wideband LC oscillators recently and my search for an amplitude stabilized configuration led me to the Vackar Oscillator (wiki).

This document (published in 1949!) "LC Oscillators and their Frequency Stability" describes the circuit and I've been studying his analysis of a generic LC oscillator presented in the first few pages.

However, one crucial part of the analysis has me stumped. If you look on page 4, derivation (5) you see this relation:

$$V_{0}=V_{2}\sqrt{\frac{R_{d}}{Z_{{2}'}}}$$

where

V0 is the voltage developed across the tuned circuit

V2 is the voltage developed across the input impedance to the tuned circuit

Rd is the dynamic resistance of the tuned circuit

Z2' is the input impedance of the tuned circuit

Vackar describes this formula as "the well-known impedance transformation". But I can't find this relation described in any of my texts. It looks vaguely similar to formulas related to tapped capacitors (and in particular how they behave as ideal transformers), but I'm not sure.

Can anyone provide a derivation of this formula?
