# A series AC circuit has a resistance of 4 Ω and a reactance of 3 Ω. The impedance of the circuit is

A. 5Ω

B. 7Ω

C. 12/7Ω

D. 7/12 Ω

Answer :

The impedance of an AC circuit is given by … (i), where R = resistance, X = impedance.

Given: Resistance R = 4 Ω and Impedance X = 3 Ω

Substituting these values in (i), we get

Impedance Z = = 5 Ω (Ans)
