## Electromagnet Amp

I need to build an amp circuit for an electromagnetic signal, but I don't know much about amp cicuitry. I am goin to amplify a 7800 Hz siganl from an mp3 player through a coil. I'm making one of those cart locker things. Any ideas?

If your circuit contains capacitors or inductors, the voltage and current will typically be out of phase with each other. For example, for an inductor, the current will lag behind the voltage (because it takes time to switch the current flowing through an inductor), whereas for a capacitor, the voltage lags behind the current (because it takes time for a capacitor to charge).

If the voltage and current are out of phase, the impedance takes on a complex value, where the magnitude (aka absolute value, or modulus) of the impedance is the ratio of the voltage amplitude divided by the current amplitude, and the angle of the impedance is equal to the difference in phase between them.

Both the magnitude and angle of the impedance typically change depending on the frequency.

As usual, Wikipedia has a pretty decent explanation of impedance...
