This quiz and worksheet will gauge your understanding of alternating current circuits. The quiz will also assess your comprehension of concepts like voltage and current.

Use these assessment tools to:

- Define alternating current
- Identify and calculate peak voltage
- Determine capacitive reactance of a capacitor
- Calculate rms current flowing through a circuit in a given problem

This worksheet and quiz let you practice the following skills:

**Making connections**- use understanding of the concept of the resistance of a component in an AC circuit**Interpreting information**- verify that you can read information regarding impedance and interpret it correctly**Informational recall**- access the knowledge you've gained regarding reactance

To learn more about impedance in alternating current circuits, review the accompanying lesson titled 'Impedance in Alternating Current Circuits.' This lesson covers the following objectives:

- Understand resistors
- Recognize capacitors and inductors
- Discuss how to perform calculations using Ohm's Law
