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:

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