    Inductance Help

    Introduction In dc electrical circuits, the relationship among current, voltage, resistance, and power is simple. The same is true for ac circuits as long as those circuits do not store or release any energy during the course of each current ...

    Inductive Reactance Help

    Introduction In dc circuits, resistance is a simple thing. It can be expressed as a number ranging from zero (a perfect conductor) to extremely large values, increasing without limit through thousands, millions, and billions of ohms. ...

    Capacitance Help

    Introduction Capacitance impedes the flow of ac charge carriers by temporarily storing the energy as an electrical field. This energy is given back later. Capacitance generally is not important in pure dc circuits, but it can have significance ...

    Capacitive Reactance Help

    Introduction Inductive reactance has its counterpart in the form of capacitive reactance . This, too, can be represented as a ray starting at the same zero point as inductive reactance but running off in the opposite direction, having ...
