# Capacitive Reactance

Capacitive reactance is the opposition to holding an electric charge.

## Capacitive Reactance formula

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

### Where:

\(\large{ X_c }\) = capacitive reactance

\(\large{ \pi }\) = Pi

\(\large{ f }\) = frequency

\(\large{ C }\) = capacitance

### Solve for:

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

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