Impedance Definition And Meaning 

What's The Definition Of Impedance?
[n] a material's opposition to the flow of electric current; measured in ohms
Synonyms  Synonyms for Impedance: electric resistance  electrical resistance  ohmic resistance  resistance  resistivity Related Terms  Find terms related to Impedance: capacitive reactance  clog  cumbrance  electric resistance  hindrance  impediment  inductive reactance  magnetic reluctance  ohm  ohmage  reactance  reluctance  reluctivity  resistance  skin effect  specific reluctance  surface resistance  volume resistance See Also  electrical phenomenon  ohmage Impedance In Webster's Dictionary \Im*ped"ance\, n. [Impede + ance.] (Elec.)
The apparent resistance in an electric circuit to the flow of
an alternating current, analogous to the actual electrical
resistance to a direct current, being the ratio of
electromotive force to the current. It is equal to root{R^{2}
+ X^{2}}, where R = ohmic resistance, X = reactance. For an
inductive circuit, X = 2[pi]fL, where f = frequency and L =
selfinductance; for a circuit with capacity X = 1 [div]
2[pi]fC, where C = capacity.
