[previous page] [next page] | [table of contents][page overview] |

For the analysis of linear a.c. networks (alternating current network) it is advantageous to use polar coordinates. With the voltage and the current given as

is referred to as effective resistance, as reactance, and as impedance.

As an example, the (total) resistance of the circuit, shown in the figure, is
