# Ohms Law for AC Series & Parallel circuits

Ohms Law for AC -- Alternating Current -- is different from Ohm's Law for DC -- Direct Current -- circuits because DC circuits have only pure resistance. AC circuits may contain Inductive(coil) and/or capacitive(capacitor) reactive circuits. These circuits affect the phase of the voltage and current. This phase shift must be taken into account when analyzing the circuit.

# Inductor or Coil symbol "L" is Measured by it's inductance in units of Henries

# A capacitor or condenser symbol "C" is Measured by it's capacitance in farads.
