“What opposes electric current flow?”

 

Resistors are commonly known to oppose electricity. However, how can other components such as capacitors and transducers oppose it as well? Well, it turns out that each of these components contribute to something called the Electrical Reactance of the system. Due to the time-varying nature of the components, reactance is typically used when dealing with AC signals.
