Inductive reactance:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{X}}}_{{\mathbf{L}}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{2}}{\mathbf{\pi }}{\mathbf{f}}{\mathbf{L}}}$, where f is the frequency and  L is the inductance.

Capacitive reactance:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{X}}}_{{\mathbf{C}}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{2}\mathbf{\pi }\mathbf{f}\mathbf{C}}}$, where C is the capacitance.

Impedance, resistors, capacitors, and inductors are related by:

$\overline{){\mathbf{Z}}{\mathbf{=}}\sqrt{{\mathbf{R}}^{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{+}{\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{X}}^{}}}$L-XC)2, where R is the resistance.

(a)

The impedance, Z is obtained by the power factor:

$\begin{array}{rcl}\mathbf{c}\mathbf{o}\mathbf{s}\mathbf{\varphi }& \mathbf{=}& \frac{\mathbf{R}}{\mathbf{Z}}\\ \mathbf{Z}& \mathbf{=}& \frac{\mathbf{R}}{\mathbf{c}\mathbf{o}\mathbf{s}\mathbf{\varphi }}\\ & \mathbf{=}& \frac{\mathbf{200}}{\mathbf{c}\mathbf{o}\mathbf{s}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{45}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{0}\mathbf{°}\mathbf{\right)}}\end{array}$ ###### Problem Details
