### How can these passive RLC circuits change a sinusoid's frequency?

Given a sinusoid input of frequency f, an RLC network, no matter how complex, should produce a sinusoidal output of frequency f, with possible attenuation and phase shift. At least that's my ...

### Does this op amp connected to an LC tank amplify its resonant frequency?

The circuit below has a resonant frequency at 159.155 kHz and should amplify it: That's exactly what this sweep predicts: But,even when setting V1 to 159.155 kHz the transient analysis shows no ...
