impedance: The total passive opposition offered to the flow of electric current. Note 1: Impedance is determined by the particular combination of resistance, inductive reactance, and capacitive reactance in a given circuit. (188) Note 2: Impedance is a function of frequency, except in the case of purely resistive networks.
