Teaching of Inductive and Capacitive Reactance.
MacInnes, I.; Jeffrey, W. S.
Physics Education, v18 n4 p180-84 Jul 1983
Discusses how understanding mechanical systems and their graphic representation can be of value when teaching inductive and capacitive reactance, in particular, the response of inductors and capacitors to an alternating potential difference. Suggests that mechanical systems be taught, not just before introducing reactance but earlier in the physics sequence. (JN)
