  1. Admittance

    In electrical engineering, admittance is a measure of how easily a circuit or device will allow a current to flow. It is defined as the reciprocal of impedance, analogous to how conductance & resistance are defined. The SI unit of admittance is the siemens (symbol S); the older, synonymous unit is mho, and its symbol is ℧ (an upside-down uppercase omega Ω). Oliver Heaviside coined the term admittance in December 1887.Admittance is defined as Y ≡ 1 Z {\displaystyle Y\equiv {\frac {1}{Z}}\,} where Y is the admittance, measured in siemens Z is the impedance, measured in ohmsResistance is a measure of the opposition of a circuit to the flow of a steady current, while impedance takes into account not only the resistance but also dynamic effects (known as reactance).

The SI unit of admittance is the siemens. Oliver Heaviside coined the term admittance in December 1887. where The synonymous unit mho, and the symbol ℧, are also in common use. Resistance is a measure of the opposition of a circuit to the flow of a steady current, while impedance takes into account not only the resistance but also dynamic effects. Likewise, admittance is not only a measure of the ease with which a steady current can flow, but also the dynamic effects of the material's susceptance to polarization: where ⁕ is the admittance, measured in siemens. ⁕ is the conductance, measured in siemens. ⁕ is the susceptance, measured in siemens. ⁕
