## Capacitive Reactance Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a capacitive reactance.

Xc = 1/(2*Pi*f*C)

- Where Xc is the capacitive reactance
- f is the frequency
- C is the capacitance

## Capacitive Reactance Definition

Capacitive reactance is the force of resistance to change of a voltage moving across a circuit or element. In other words the opposition to change.
