RLC Parallel Calculation

The frequency dependent impedance of an RLC parallel circuit.
RLC parallel discussion
Expressions for calculation
Parallel resonance
For C = x10^ F = μF = pF
and L = x10^ H = mH = microHenries
at angular frequency ω = x10^ rad/s,
frequency = x10^ Hz = kHz = MHz
and series resistances:
RC = x10^ ohms = kohms = Megohms,
RL = x10^ ohms = kohms = Megohms,

the impedance is

Z = x10^ ohms = kohms = Megohms

at phase φ = degrees.
The resonant condition is
Using the series resonant frequency
Angular frequency ω = x10^ rad/s,
Frequency f = x10^ Hz
Z = x10^ ohms
Phase φ = degrees.
