Enter the frequency or the electrical supply and the inductance of the system to determine the inductive reactance.

## Inductive Reactance Formula

The following formula is used to calculate an inductive reactance.

X_{L} = 2*pi*f*L

- Where XL is the inductive reactance (ohms)
- f is the frequency of the electrical supply (hertz)
- L is the inductance (henries)

## Inductive Reactance Definition

An inductive reactance is defined as the reactance that arises from the inductance of an inductor.

## Inductive Reactance Example

How to calculate inductive reactance?

**First, determine the frequency.**Measure the frequency of the electrical current moving through the system.

**Next, determine the inductance.**Measure or calculate the total inductance of the system.

**Finally, calculate the inductive reactance.**Using the formula along with the frequency and inductance, calculate the inductive reactance.
