Capacitor and inductor in Series Calculator

  This calculator finds the total reactance (imaginary value) of a capacitor and an inductor in series.


[Circuit of capacitor in series with Inductor]
XT =


  The total reactance (XT) of a capacitor and a inductor in series at a particular frequency can be calculated using the following equations.

[Equations for Xc, Xl and total reactance Xt]


f is the Frequency in Hz

C is the Capacitance in Farads

L is the Inductance in Henries

XC is the Capacitive Reactance in Ohms

XL is the Inductive Reactance in Ohms
