Electrical resistance to current flow which changes with the frequency of the current.

The opposition to AC offered by either an inductor or a capacitor.

A resistive like property that offers opposition to electron flow in an alternating current (AC) circuit. There are two types of reactance; capacitive reactance (XC) and inductive reactance (XL). Reactance varies with frequency.

the apparent resistance of capacitors and inductors to alternating current.

It is the impedance at frequencies other than DC.

The opposition to an alternating current presented by inductance, capacitance, or a combination of the two. Reactance is measured in "ohms" and is represented by the letter "X."

This phenomenon is the opposition to the current flow (similar to resistance) due to the presence of inductance, capacitance, or both.

Frequency-dependent impedance that is capable of storing but not dissipating energy. Reactance can be capacitive or inductive.

Opposition to AC power flow caused by a circuit's inductance or capacitance. Reactance does not dissipate power, unlike resistance, but it changes the phase angle between alternating voltage and alternating current. Reactance is the imaginary part of impedance.

The opposition that a pure inductance or a pure capacitance provides to current in an ac circuit.

opposition to the flow of electric current resulting from inductance and capacitance (rather than resistance)

The opposition to the flow of ac current, which is created by either inductance or capacitance. In such a circuit, total impedance is therefore the sum of reactance and resistance. The unit is the ohm.

The property of an alternating current circuit to resist the flow of current due either to capacitance or inductance. Reactance, unlike resistance, does not dissipate energy. Reactance is responsible for the phenomenon known as phase shift, which is the tendency for current in an alternating current circuit to be out of step in time with the voltage of the circuit. Reactance is a function of frequency and relates to harmonics.

A frequency selective resistance. Inductance and capacitance are the two forms of reactance. The combination of resistance and reactance is impedance.

Reactance has two components, capacitive reactance and inductive reactance. The values of reactance are determined by the values of the individual capacitor or inductor as well as the frequency of the current flowing in the circuit.

opposition to the flow of AC energy through a cable. Composed of capacitance and inductance.

The opposition to the flow of AC current, which is created by either inductance or capacitance. In such a circuit the total impedance is therefore the sum of reactance and resistance. Its units are ohms.

Opposition to the flow of alternating current in a circuit or circuit element, caused by inductance or capacitance.

Opposition to the flow of electrical current which changes with the frequency of the current.

Reactance is the opposition to the flow of current in AC circuits caused by inductances and capacitances. It is expressed in terms of ohms and its symbol is X.

The opposition to the flow of alternating current ( A.C.) caused by the inductance and capacitance in a circuit rather than by resistance. Impedance is a complex combination of reactance and resistance.

The opposition offered to the flow of an alternating current by the inductance, capacitance, or both, in any circuit.

The characteristic of a coil, when connected to alternating current, which causes the current to lag the voltage in time phase. The current wave reaches its peak later than the voltage wave reaches its peak.

Symbol "X". Opposition to current flow without the dissipation of energy. Example: The opposition provided by inductance or capacitance to AC current.

Opposition to the flow of alternating current. Capacitive reactance is the opposition offered by capacitors, and inductive reactance is the opposition offered by a coil or other inductance.

A component of impedance produced by either inductance or capacitance in an AC circuit.

In passive or active AC circuits, a form of frequency-dependent resistance produced by an inductor. An inductor will let DC current pass through unaltered and will attenuate higher frequencies, depending on its reactance.

A form of opposition that electronic components exhibit to the passage of alternating current (AC) due to of capacitance or inductance.

Relative measurement (%) of the internal impedance of an AC generator during harmonic phenomena. This reactance, also called the longitudinal subtransient reactance of the generator, is sometimes identified as X"d. For most common generators, the value ranges between 15 and 20%. It can drop to 12% for optimized systems and to 6% for special devices.

A measure of the combined effects of capacitance and inductance on an alternating current. The amount of such opposition varies with the frequency of the current. The reactance of a capacitor decreases with an increase in frequency; the opposite occurs with an inductance.

This is the opposition to variations of alternating current, capacitive reactance is in terms of capacitors, and inductive reactance is the opposition to change from an inductor or coils.

A counter voltage occurring in AC circuits causing power loss.

The opposition afforded an alternating current circuit, measured in ohms.

The opposition offered to the flow of Alternating Current (A.C.) by inductance or capacitance of a component or circuit.

The opposition to a flow of current other than pure resistance. Inductive reactance is the opposition to change of current in an inductance (coil of wire). Capacitive reactance is the opposition to change of voltage in a capacitor.

That part of the impedance of an alternating current circuit due to capacitance or inductance or both.

In Ac circuits, whether passive or active, a form of frequency dependent resistance produced by inductors. Such an inductive loading will allow all dc current to pass without change, but will attenuate various, mostly higher frequencies, depending on the nature of the coil.

Doing the opposite of what the individual or group wants us to do.

Reactance is an action in direct contradiction to rules and/or regulations that threaten or eliminate specific behavioral freedoms; it can occur when someone is heavily pressured to accept a certain view or attitude. Reactance can cause the person to adopt or strengthen a view or attitude that is contrary to what was intended and also increases resistance to persuasion. A mild example could be a boy being all the more interested in a girl playing "hard to get", or teenagers drinking to excess in an environment of prohibition when they would not do so in a less restrictive culture.
