What Is the Definition of Reactance?


Reactance refers to the non resistive component of impedance in an AC circuit. It arises from the effect of capacitance or inductance or both which causes the current to be out of point with the electromotive force causing it.

Q&A Related to "What Is the Definition of Reactance"
Opposition to the flow of AC current produced by an inductor. Measured in Ohms and varies in direct proportion to frequency.
Urban Dictionary defines Bat Theory as: The theory
reactance: opposition to the flow of electric current resulting from inductance and capacitance (rather than resistance)
Reactance is the property of resisting or impeding the flow of ac current or ac voltage. Resistance is the value of opposition of current.
