AC Circuit Equations
Impedance in Relation to R and X
Ohm's Law for AC
E = Voltage in volts
I = Current in amperes (amps)
Z = Impedance in ohms
Series and Parallel Impedances
NOTE: All impedances must be calculated in complex number form for these equations to work.
NOTE: This equation applies to a non-resistive LC circuit. In circuits containing resistance as well as inductance and capacitance, this equation applies only to series configurations and to parallel configurations where R is very small.
