Post converting henries to ohms

is it possible to convert henries to ohms?

as one is quantity a of inductance and one resistance?

i have searched the web for the equal but to no avail

trying to convert 1.5 H to ohms

An inductor of L(in Henry) inductance offers reactance Xl (in Ohms) given by
Xl = 2\pif*L.
called inductive reactance.
Where f is the frequency of the voltage applied.

(reactance and resistance aren't the same)

No, as you noted, they are two different things. At an AC frequency, henries produce a reactance which is measured in ohms, but it still is a different quantity than resistance ohms. So you have two strikes working against their equivalence. Ratch
