Section 23 Inductive Reactance in Series and Parallel XL Circuits Inductive Reactance in Series Equation Total Series Inductive Reactance X_{LT} = X_{L1} + X_{L2} + X_{L3} + ... + X_{Ln} Where  X_{LT} = Total inductive of the series circuit
 X_{L1}, X_{L2}, X_{L3}, X_{Ln} = Reactance of the individual inductors
 X_{LT} = 2pf(L_{1 }+ L_{2} + L_{3} + ... + L_{n}) X_{LT} = 2pfL_{T} Inductive Reactance in Parallel Equation Total Parallel Inductive Reactance X_{LT} =  1  1  +  1  +  1  + ... +  1  X_{L}_{1}  X_{L}_{2}  X_{L3}  X_{L}_{n}  Where  X_{L}_{T} = Total inductive of the parallel circuit
 X_{L}_{1}, X_{L}_{2}, X_{L}_{3}, X_{L}_{n} = Reactance of the individual inductors
 The productoversum equation and it's shorthand rendering are available for calculating the total inductive reactance of a parallel inductor circuit. X_{LT} =  X_{L}_{1}X_{L}_{2}  X_{L}_{1} + X_{L}_{2}  or X_{L}_{1}  X_{L}_{2} X_{L}_{2} =  X_{L}_{1}X_{T}  X_{L}_{1} – X_{T}  Example X_{L1} = 180W X_{LT} = 120W X_{L}_{2} =  X_{L}_{1}X_{T}  X_{L}_{1} – X_{T}  X_{L}_{2} =  180 x 120  180 – 120  X_{L}_{2} = 360W
