Such a response, known in psychology as reactance, generally is short-lived.
reactance is the effect of self-induction in hindering the flow of current.
The combined effect of resistance and reactance is called impedance.
Impedance, however, does not equal the sum of resistance and reactance.
The degree to which the current is opposed by the capacity is the reactance of that capacity for that frequency.
The degree in which any current is opposed by inductance is termed the reactance of that inductance.
Find the reactance of a choke coil having a resistance of 10 ohms, when its impedance is 50 ohms.
The light obtainable through a reactance is not of the best quality and reactances are not much used.
If a reactance is used in place of a rheostat in an alternating-current circuit, the loss of energy is greatly reduced.
The essential parts of a Tungar Rectifier are: A bulb, transformer, reactance, and the enclosing case and equipment.
