Determine the resistance, R and series inductance L (or capacitance C) for each of the following impedances assuming the frequency is 50Hz.

i - (6 + j9) Ω
ii - (7 - j8) Ω
iii - j15Ω

Not sure this is in the right forum for this question... it looks it has some uncommon terminology, specific to a different subject.

Yeah, it's physics/electronics (+outside of my knowledge base - I just know enough to say that...)

I suppose moving it to Physics would be better than leaving it here then.

The real part is the resistance and the imaginary part is the reactance
so for (6+j9) the resistance is 6 ohms and the reactance is 9 ohms inductive reactance XL (+ve j means inductance)
and for (7-j8) the resistance is 7 ohms and the reactance is 8 ohms capacitive reactance XC (-ve j means capacitive)

the formula for inductive reactance is XL = 2πfL
the formula for capacitive reactance is XC = 1/(2πfC)

so you need to rearrange those to make C or L the subject and sub in the given frequency of 50Hz

I change the title a bit so that it looks more like a physics thread.
