Inductive reactance

Inductive reactance is the opposition to the change of current across an element. The reactance gets larger if the frequency and inductance get larger.


The reactance, inductance and frequency can be calculated with the formulas below.

X L is the symbol for inductive reactance and is measured in (Ω).
L is the symbol for inductance and is measured in henry (H).
f is the symbol for frequency and is measured in hertz (Hz).
