Top definition
Capactive reactance is the analysis of an alternating-current electrical circuit (for example a RLC series circuit), reactance is the imaginary part of impedance, and is caused by the presence of inductors or capacitors in the circuit. Reactance produces a phase shift between the electric current and voltage in the circuit.
This is determined by the equation XC=1/2piFC XC is an impedance and is measured in ohms.
