## What is the impedance of a pure inductance?

So whenever a sinusoidal voltage is applied to an inductive coil, the back emf opposes the rise and fall of the current flowing through the coil and in a purely inductive coil which has zero resistance or losses, this impedance (which can be a complex number) is equal to its inductive reactance.

## What is an impedance triangle?

The triangle that is created when adding the resistance to the reactance is known as an impedance triangle. Figure 22. Impedance triangle. In an impedance triangle, the resistance (r) is always on the bottom of the triangle, the reactance (x) always goes on the side and the hypotenuse is always the impedance (z).

**How do you find the impedance of a triangle?**

Explanation of Impedance Triangle: Let the impedance of an alternating current circuit is Z = R+jX where R and X represents the resistance and reactance. It is clear from the expression of Z is that, it is a complex number and hence can be geometrically represented in the same manner as a complex number.

**How do you calculate impedance of an inductor?**

Answer: The inductor impedance calculator calculates the impedance of an inductor based on the value of the inductance, L, of the inductor and the frequency, f, of the signal passing through the inductor, according to the formula, XL= 2πfL.

### What is impedance in AC circuit?

AC impedance is the gauge of opposition a circuit presents to current each time a voltage is applied. In a more quantitative sense, it is the ratio of voltage to current within alternating current. Impedance can be extended to the idea of AC circuit resistance and include both phase and magnitude.

### What is the impedance of a capacitor?

Impedance of a capacitive element; it is measured in ohms and is a measure of how much the capacitive element “controls or impedes” the level of current through the network.

**How do you calculate impedance?**

To calculate impedance, calculate the resistance and reactance of the circuit, then label resistance as R and reactance as X. Square both R and X, and add the two products together. Take the square root of the sum of the squares of R and X to get impedance. Display the answer in ohms.

**What is the formula used to determine impedance?**

In AC circuits, Ohm’s Law takes the more general form: E = I⋅Z, where E is voltage and I is current, as before. The new term, Z, is impedance, a vector combination of: Resistance, R (in ohms), with voltage drops in phase with the current.

## What is the impedance of coil?

The opposition to current flowing through a coil in an AC circuit is determined by the AC resistance, more commonly known as Impedance (Z), of the circuit. But resistance is always associated with DC circuits so to distinguish DC resistance from AC resistance the term Reactance is generally used.
