CBSE - XII Science - Physics - Alternating Current
2 differences between resistance,raectance and impedance?
Reactance is when Voltage & current are 90deg out of phase(in capacitive /inductive ckt). Depending on whether it is +90 (lead) or -90 (lag) it is called an inductive reactance or capacitive reactance. Reactance is normally denoted by the imaginary operator 'j'
Impedance is a combination of both of the above. It is usually rep as a complex number like 2 - j3.5.
The phase angle between V & I could be any value.
