The AC Capacitive Reactance Handbook is a comprehensive guide providing insights into the principles and applications of capacitive reactance in alternating current circuits. Covering formulas, calculations, and practical examples, this handbook aids engineers, students, and professionals in understanding and manipulating capacitive reactance’s role in AC circuit design and analysis.
Capacitors do not behave the same as resistors. Whereas resistors allow a ﬂow of electrons through them directly proportional to the voltage drop, capacitors oppose changes in voltage by drawing or supplying current as they charge or discharge to the new voltage level. The ﬂow of electrons “through” a capacitor is directly proportional to the rate of change of voltage across the capacitor. This opposition to voltage change is another form of reactance, but one that is precisely opposite to the kind exhibited by inductors. Download the book from link.
