Self-Test Questions Volume 1

Symbol for inductive reactance XL
Determined by the frequency and amount of inductance in the circuit Inductance
Total opposition to the flow of alternating current Impedance
Unit of capacitance Farad
Found by adding the individual reactance’s Total reactance in an AC circuit
Number of times each cycle occurs in a second Frequency
A complete positive and negative alternation Cycle
How do electrons travel in a circuit? From negative to positive
What is the difference in current flow between an AC circuit that contains only resistance and a DC circuit that contains only resistance? The current flow in a circuit containing resistance only is the same, regardless of whether the applied voltage is AC or DC.
In an AC circuit, when is the apparent power equal to the true power? When the circuit consists of pure resistance.
When is the true power less than the apparent power? When the current and voltage are out of phase due to reactance in the circuit.
What is the formula for power factor? Power factor = watts / volts x amps
