Capacitor and Resistor in Series Calculator

This calculator finds the complex impedance (real and imaginary values) of a capacitor and an inductor in series.

[Capacitor in series with resistor]
Z = 


The complex impedance (Z) (real and imaginary, or resistance and reactance) of a capacitor and a resistor in series at a particular frequency can be calculated using the following equation.

[Equations for Xc and Z]


f is the Frequency in Hz

C is the Capacitance in Farads

R is the Resistance in Ohms
