Capacitive Reactance

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Electromagnetism

Capacitive reactance is the opposition to holding an electric charge.

formula

\(X_c =  \frac { 1 }  { 2 \pi  f C }    \)

Where:

\(X_c\) = capacitive reactance

\(\pi\) = Pi

\(f\) = frequency

\(C\) = capacitance

Solve for:

\(f =  \frac { 1 }  { 2 \pi  X_c C }    \)

\(C =  \frac { 1 }  { 2 \pi  X_c f }    \)
