Opposition to the flow of ac current; the equivalent of resistance in dc circuits. Expressed in units called ohms.
The impedance of an ac circuit is one ohm if a potential difference of one volt creates a current flow of one ampere within it.
A nickel-chromium alloy.
Noted for good strength and excellent resistance to oxidation and carburisation in high-temperature atmospheres.
A nickel-chromium-iron alloy.
Noted for having high temperature strength while maintaining excellent corrosion resistance.
The property by which an electromotive force (emf) is induced in a conductor when the magnetic field is changing about it.
This is usually caused by changes in the current flow in the circuit or in a neighboring circuit.
