The Physics Source website will be unavailable Friday evening through Saturday afternoon as electrical work occurs in the American Center of Physics server room. Down time will begin at 6PM Eastern Time on Friday. Service is expected to resume by 6PM on Saturday, July 30.
This website includes an explanation of impedance in AC circuits, along with an applet that draws graphs and phasor diagrams for some important variables in the circuit. The explanation of impedance gives formulas for reactance, impedance and resonance, and explains the importance of resonance. The applet allows the user to vary the frequency, resistance, capacitance, and inductance of the circuit, and the applet can then graph the current, the current-voltage phase difference, or the impedance.
