Impedance is a word that describes the resistance or opposition that an electric circuit encounters while conducting current. Some synonyms for the term impedance include resistance, opposition, hindrance, obstruction, and obstacle. These words all indicate an element that makes it difficult for something to pass through or happen smoothly. Electrical engineers and technicians use the term impedance frequently when designing, testing, and troubleshooting electronic circuits. It is an essential concept in the field as the proper management of impedance within a circuit can improve performance and help to avoid issues such as heating, noise, or data loss.

How to use "Impedance" in context?

When we think about electrical circuits, we typically think about volts and amps. But in reality, any process that creates a voltage or current also creates a push and pull duo known as impedance. This concept is incredibly important when it comes to understanding how electrical circuits operate, and it can even have impacts on performance.

In a simple electrical circuit, like a battery, a resistor (a device that creates a decrease in current) and an inductor (a device that creates a increase in current) combine to create either a voltage or a current.
