ringbutton3 So far so good we’ve looked at circuits that contain only resistance, inductance or capacitance. However we also mentioned that circuits cannot, in practice, be solely inductive. Therefore we must take account of circuits that have resistance and inductance and we can represent a coil as a pure inductor in series with a resistor

ringbutton3 For a pure inductor, the effect limiting current is In a circuit that has both resistance and inductance, both effects contribute to limiting the voltage, and:

ringbutton3 For an AC circuit, the ratio U/I is know as impedance (Z) which has the units of ohms (Ω). The impedance in ohms may be defined as the applied voltage in volts needed to drive a current of one ampere. Therefore:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
