What is a capacitor impedance calculator for?

Engineers, electricians, and hobbyists use capacitor impedance calculators. These calculators are online mathematical tools that allow me to figure out the impedance of a capacitor given other information about it.

An overview of these calculators

Reactance is how difficult it is for AC to move through a capacitor. If the reactance is low, an alternating current will easily move through it. If reactance is high, a stronger current will pass through it, and a weaker flow will be blocked.

While reactance determines only how difficult it is for alternating current to pass through a capacitor, impedance measures its reactance to both direct current and alternating current. Measuring the reactance of a capacitor is more complex than measuring the resistance of a resistor. A resistor can have its resistance expressed simply in Ohms, a single number. A capacitor is more complex.
