# Inductor Q Factor Calculator

An inductor is an electronic component which converts the electric current into heat through its coils. At a given frequency, the ratio of inductive reactance to its resistance is called as the quality factor (Q factor) of an inductor. Use our online inductor Q factor calculator to measure the efficiency of an inductor.

### Example:

Calculate Quality Factor (Q) for the following data :

Frequency (f) = 56,

Inductance(L) = 12,

Internal Resistance (R) = 5

#### Solution:

Quality Factor (Q) = ((2x3.14x56)x12)/5

= 844.032
