Inductive Reactance Calculator
Top
Inductive reactance xL is the property of an ac circuit which opposes the change in current. Consider the circuit
Inductive Reactance
Reactance is given as
XL = 2 $\pi$ fL
Where f is the frequency in Hz,
L is the inductance in Henry,
XL is the inductive reactance in $\Omega$

Inductive reactance Calculator is a online tool to calculate the value of the inductive reactance XL. You just have to enter the frequency (f), inductance (L) to get the inductive reactance. You can also get other quantities if you have atleast 2 known quantities among these.

  1. A solenoid carries a signal of frequency 100 Hz and an inductance of 1 Henry. Calculate the reactance of inductance.


    Step 1 :  

    Given: Frequency f = 100 $\Omega$, inductance L = 1 Henry



    Step 2 :  

    The inductive reactance is given by
    XL = 2 $\pi$ fL
       = 2 $\times$ $\pi$ $\times$ 100 $\Omega$ $\times$ 1 H
       = 200 $\Omega$.



    Answer  :  

    The inductance reactance xL = 200 $\Omega$.



  2. An inductance coil has frequency 1000 Hz. Calculate its inductive reactance if the inductance value is 100 $\Omega$.


    Step 1 :  

    Given: Frequency f = 1000 Hz, inductive reactance xL = 100 $\Omega$



    Step 2 :  

    The inductive reactance is given by
    XL = 2 $\pi$ fL

    Inductance L = $\frac{X_L}{2 \pi f}$
                       = $\frac{100}{2 \pi 1000}$
                       = 0.05 Henry.



    Answer  :  

    The inductance L = 0.05 Henry.
