How can a voltage across a capacitor be greater than the total voltage applied to the circuit?

A capacitor on a PSC induction motor which is wired in series with the start winding (and always in the circuit when running) will read higher than the applied voltage. This is due to the fact that ...

Vortex generated as a result of Newton's third law

What physical process is this claiming to describe? And what is the book and who are the authors? This does not resemble anything I've ever seen in physics; certainly not Newtonian Mechanics. I ...

Deriving an lumped element LC circuit as the limit of a resonant cavity mode

I cannot see anything wrong with your derivation, only that you compared scenarios with incompatible "experimental details". As you found out, the driving term is on the "wrong" (...

Link between resonant states (quasinormal modes) in 1D wave equation, and roots in reflection coefficient?

This statement is in general not true. Let us first look at how this comes about in this specific geometry. The reflection coefficient of a dielectric slab of length $L$ and refractive index $n$ ...

Does resonance still occur at half, a quarter, etc. of the resonant frequency?

A simple oscillator, such as a mass on a spring, oscillates, when displaced and released, with simple harmonic motion, that is the displacement varies sinusoidally with time at a natural frequency ...
