It has the same units ( ) as resistance. v t V t i t I t V X I = = + = ac analysis of a resistive load ( ) sin ( ) sin R R R R v t V t v V i t t R R X R V I R = = = = = Reactance: current and voltage are in phase ac analysis of a capacitive load ( 29 ( ) sin sin cos cos sin 1/ 2 1 C C C C C C C C C C C C C C v t V t q Cv CV t dq i CV t dt V t I t C X C V I X = = = = = = = + = = Reactance: Note that the current through a capacitor is 90 out of phase with voltage. iClicker question 7.01 For which of the following frequencies is the reactance of a capacitor the largest? a)1 Hz b)100 Hz c)1000 Hz d)There is insufficient information to answer this question. ac analysis of an inductive load ( ) sin 1 sin cos L L L L L L L L L L L L di v t V t L dt V V i di v dt tdt t L L L X L V I X = = = = =  = = Reactance: Note that the current through an inductor is 90 out of phase with voltage. iClicker question 7.02 For which of the following frequencies is the reactance of an inductor the largest? a)1 Hz b)100 Hz c)1000 Hz d)There is insufficient information to answer this question.
