For example, Z j = + 8 6 Ω means that a resistor of 8 Ω is in series with an inductive reactance of 6 Ω . Polar Notation: Z = M ∠ q , where M is the magnitude of the reactance and q is the direction with respect to the horizontal (pure resistance) axis. For example, a resistor of 4 Ω in series with a capacitor with a reactance of 3 Ω would be expressed as 5 ∠-36.9° Ω . In the descriptions above, impedance is used as an example. Rectangular and Polar Notation can also be used to express amperage, voltage, and power. To convert from rectangular to polar notation: Given: X- j Y ( careful with the sign before the ”j”) Magnitude: X Y M 2 2 + = Angle: tan θ =- Y X (negative sign carried over from rectangular notation in this example) Note: Due to the way the calculator works, if X is negative, you must add 180° after taking the inverse tangent. If the result is greater than 180°, you may optionally subtract 360° to obtain the value closest to the reference angle. To convert from polar to rectangular (j) notation: Given: M ∠ q X Value: M cos θ Y (j) Value: M sin θ In conversions, the j value will have the same sign as the q value for angles having a magnitude < 180°....
