Reactance and Impedance � Inductive

Reactance and Impedance � Inductive

Written by Tony R. Kuphaldt, Jim Palmer, and Jason Starck, this chapter of All About Circuit's second volume on Alternating Current describes inductive reactance and impedance. The chapter is divided into six sections: AC resistor circuits, AC inductor circuits, Series resistor-inductor circuits, Parallel resistor-inductor circuits, Inductor quirks, and More on the "skin effect." Each section has clear illustrations and examples, and most have a concise, bulleted review of what was covered at the end of the page. This is an excellent resource for educators in physics and electronic engineering classrooms to introduce lessons or units on alternating current, reactance, and impedance.
