Inductive Reactance

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Electrical Engineering

Inductive reactance, abbreviated as \(X_l\) is the current flow of an alternating current in an inductor is reduced.

 

Inductive Reactance formula

\(\large{ X_l =    2 \; \pi \; f \; L   }\)  

Where:

Units English SI
\(\large{ X_l }\) = inductive reactance \(\large{H}\) \(\large{H}\)
\(\large{ \pi }\) = Pi \(\large{dimensionless\;constant}\)
\(\large{ f }\) = frequency \(\large{Hz}\) \(\large{Hz}\)
\(\large{ L }\) = Inductance \(\large{H}\) \(\large{H}\)

Solve for:

\(\large{ f =  \frac{ X_L }{ 2 \; \pi \; L }  }\)  
\(\large{ L =  \frac{ X_L }{ 2 \; \pi \; f }  }\)
