**Resistance Vs Reactance**

Resistance and reactance together determine the magnitude and phase of the impedance through the following relations:

In many applications the relative phase of the voltage and current is not critical so only the magnitude of the impedance is significant.

“How is freedom measured, in individuals as in nations? By the *resistance* which has to be overcome, by the effort it costs to stay aloft. One would have to seek the highest type of free man where the greatest *resistance* is constantly being overcome: five steps from tyranny, near the threshold of the danger of servitude.”

—Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
