Capacitive reactance calculator can calculate the value of reactance of a capacitor using the frequency and the capacitance of capacitor.

The definition of capacitive reactance is:

“The resistance experienced by the flow of current between the walls of a capacitor is called capacitive reactance.”

The equation used for capacitive reactance:

** X _{C }= 1/2πfC**

In the above equation:

** Xc **refers to capacitive reactance,

** f** represents the frequency, and

** C** is capacitance.

*Example:*

Find the capacitive reactance of a capacitor if the capacitance is ** 80 microfarads** and the frequency is

**Solution**

**Step 1:** Identify the values.

C = 80 F

f = 200 Hz

**Step 2:** Write the formula and put the given values in it.

X_{c }= 1/2πfC

X_{c }= 1/2π(200)(80)

X_{c }= 9.947 Ω
