An Inductor, a Resistance and a Capacitor Are Joined in Series with an Ac Source. as the Frequency of the Source is Slightly Increased from a Very Low Value, the Reactance - Physics


An inductor, a resistance and a capacitor are joined in series with an AC source. As the frequency of the source is slightly increased from a very low value, the reactance


  • of the inductor increases

  • of the resistor increases

  •  of the capacitor increases

  • of the circuit increases

of the inductor increases

The reactance of an inductor is given by,
`X_L = omegaL`

And the reactance of a capacitor is given by,
`Xc = 1/(omegaC)`
Here, ω = 2πf , where f is the frequency of the source. So, when f increases, ω increases.
∴ XL will increase and XC will decrease.
