Electrical reactance - Wikipedia
OverviewComparison to resistanceCapacitive reactanceInductive reactanceImpedanceSee alsoExternal linksIn electrical circuits, reactance is the opposition presented to alternating current by inductance or capacitance. Greater reactance gives smaller current for the same applied voltage. Reactance is similar to resistance in this respect, but does not lead to dissipation of electrical energy as heat; instead, energy is momentarily stored in the reactance, and a quarter-cycle later returned to the circuit.
