This work investigates the application of bifurcation diagrams in the chaotic study of nonlinear RLC electrical circuits. The relevant second order differential equations were solved for ranges of appropriate parameters using Runge-Kutta approach. The solutions obtained were employed to produce bifurcation diagrams using Microsoft excel 2007. The mean estimate of =4.669 obtained from the bifurcation diagrams is an approximate value of the Feigenbaum constant and thus conforms to the expected results. The results show that bifurcation diagram is a useful tool for exploring dynamics of nonlinear resonant circuit over a range of control parameters.
