Such a response, known in psychology as reactance, generally is short-lived.
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.Cyclopedia of Telephony & Telegraphy Vol. 1|Kempster Miller
The light obtainable through a reactance is not of the best quality and reactances are not much used.Motion Picture Operation, Stage Electrics and Illusions|Henry C. Horstmann
Reactance is the effect of self-induction in hindering the flow of current.
Find the reactance of a choke coil having a resistance of 10 ohms, when its impedance is 50 ohms.
