    Hi!
    Please can anyone explain to me why we use Pi in the formula for capacative reactance. The best explanation that i have found is because it is a constsnt. That bit i understand but i thought that was in relation to circles, circumferences and diameters and all that stuff. I don't understand how it relates to electronics. HELP PLEASE. MANY THANKS!!!

    Because there is an almost magical relationship between e and pi, and this is one of those times when it shows up.
