Inductive ReactanceAuthor: E.E. Kimberly According to equation 11, the instantaneous emf^{1} generated in a coil by a varying current in that coil is
Also, if the flux linkages per ampere are constant,
Therefore, If the current is i = Im sin co£,
When cos wt= 1, Also, Hence, or, as it is conventionally written,
(54) The expression (2πfL) is called the inductive reactance of the circuit. The symbol for inductive reactance is XL, and it is expressed in ohms, as is resistance. Inductance is a property of a device or circuit. Inductive reactance depends on the inductance and also on the frequency.
