# Capacitive and Inductive Reactance Calculator

### How to Use the Capacitive and Inductive Reactance Calculator

#### Capacitive Reactance

Select the value of frequency and its respective multiplier from Hz, kHz, MHz, GHz or THz. Also, select the value of Capacitor. Click the Calculate button and it will provide your answer.

#### Inductive Reactance

Select the value of frequency and its respective multiplier. Select the value of Inductance and then Calculate.

### Theory

Resistors, Inductors and Capacitors are three basic electrical components.

Resistors offer electrical resistance to the circuit and this resistance is measured in ohm.

Capacitor, on the other hand, is an electrical device which stores charges. Its SI unit is capacitance.

The inductor is another electrical device which produces inductance.

In the case of resistors, the resistance is simply expressed in ohm. Whereas in the case of L and C we are required to calculate the values of reactance which is based on the frequency and value of Inductance/Capacitance.
