What are sources of resistance to change?
- Self Interest
Changes may require a different skill set, affect power status, change relationships with others, social status or self-esteem, and there for be against the personal interest.
People may be concerned as to how the change will affect their job and lives, and humanly expect the worst.
- Lack of trust
The source of the change isn't respected or trusted. "What does he know about how we actually get things done here?". Especially if the change comes from outside the department.
- Different perspectives
The change may be viewed from an entirely different perspective, for instance the engineers view v.s. the accountants view. This can happen especially when not all the angles have been considered.
Some people are just intolerant to change. The are more vested in protecting the status qua no matter how clear the benefits of change would be.
Here are some countermeasures one can use to address these resistances to change
Self Interest Create a corporate culture where employees can feel confident they will be retained and valued for their skill set. If the department can't use the skill set anymore, the employee should feel confident that he can use his skills elsewhere in the company, or that he'll be helped to train new relevant skill sets.
Uncertainty Ensure sufficient information is communicated about the proposed change. Additional background information should be available. Option to ask questions should be available and always answered.
Give the organization sufficient time to get used to the idea, also communicating well upfront is helpful.
Lack of trust Change from within. Get a respectable colleague from the to be affected department(s) to join the project team. Collaborate to reach the proposed change, reach consensus. He or she can become an advocate for communicating the proposal to the affected department.
Different perspectives Ensure you have a well rounded team that can look from the different viewpoints. Include the to be affected departments in the discussion. Hear all the opinions upfront and include their feedback into the change. This provides a more well rounded idea.
Inflexibility Some people will always resist change. Having a trial period first can help ease them into this, also provides reassurance that if the change doesn't help, we can go back to the old situation. However, in the end, if the change is clearly beneficial, there may still be a few individuals that are unwilling to change along. This could be the deadwood of the organization that would be better suited to work elsewhere...

Answer . All systems, from the simple cell to the biggest organizations, have resistance against a change. This is part of the inbuilt survival mechanism; otherwise the system would easily fall apart or is vulnerable against influences coming from the outside. The once established structure, grow…n over long time, gives stability and so security, from which individuals within this system, gain their own profit by being part and identified with it. Personality is a system, which functions in the same way: The individual is identified with the once established structure; build by mental concepts and all intellectual knowledge. The same with the emotional structure, which is mostly unconscious and contains all traumas and received influences during lifetime. From this background reactions are triggered, reforcing the established structure. Part of the system is the material form, with which the individual also is identified and the same with all material belongings. The tendency is to add more and more, getting richer or widening ones power by adding more knowledge or emotional excitement. Anything is welcome which serves to make the system more stable and secure. The individual does anything to get confirmation for its existence on all levels, mostly all doing is directed to gain. A change that will not enrich or confirm the system in its existence will be rejected. Even though a change would be an evolutional step and bring the system to a more advanced level, what might be called a transformational change . By doing this step, resistance and other obstacles might vanish, but to do such a step, the system must grow by itself beyond ones limitation through a growing process, which includes all levels of ones being. Manipulation or force, which is usual used, will not work on the long run... How to make a transformational change happen, is another question. There are ways to support and help, but the system must be ready for it. BeiYin (MORE)
The resistance of an object to changes in its motion is known asinertia. Changes in an objects motion include changes in its speedand direction.
Answer . Resistance changes with temperature. The lamp becomes hotter, resistance changes.. Answer . An incandescent light-bulb takes just enough electric current to make a piece of metal glow brightly enough to give out visible light yet not get so hot that it melts and breaks. The piece of …metal is called a tungsten filament.. Experiments were made with different materials to use as the filament, including natural fibers, pure metals and alloys of different metals, to find the material which had the longest life whilst glowing brightly enough to give out visible light. The metal Tungsten was found to be the best.. Also experiments were made trying a vacuum or different kinds of gas inside the glass bulb to find out which was the best. For many years Nitrogen gas was found to be the best but other gases or mixtures of gases may now be used.. Fluorescent light bulbs electrically charge a gas (sometimes one of the inert gases like neon).. Whilst it is normal every-day talk to say that a light bulb or a lamp is "burning", that is not strictly accurate because, speaking strictly scientifically, the word "burning" has a very precise meaning. When something is said to be "burning" it means the material is combining with the element Oxygen to form a compound called an Oxide. For example when Carbon is burnt it makes either Carbon Monoxide or Carbon Dioxide or a mixture of those two gases. How much of each is made depends on the actual conditions in which the Carbon is being burnt.. That is why it is scientifically correct to say that a light bulb is "glowing" and not that it is "burning".. Answer . Modern light bulbs don't hold a vacuum. Instead they are filled with an inert (electrically non-conducting) gas such as Nitrogen.. An inert gas is used to fill the bulb (instead of just pumping out almost all the air to leave a near-vacuum) because the action of filling the bulb with an inert gas can be used to flush away ALL of the air.. In addition the inert gas has the very useful physical property of helping to conduct heat from the glowing filament to the glass bulb. This allows the whole surface area of the glass bulb to radiate heat into the surrounding air.. It is important to understand that the inert gas does not allow the filament to "burn away", it just allows it to glow brightly. If some air were still present in the bulb - as sometimes happens if a light bulb gets knocked and gets even a tiny crack in its glass bulb - then the oxygen present in ordinary air will quickly make the filament burn away.. If the light bulb just held a vacuum (as was the case in the early days of electric lighting) the main way the heat from the hot glowing filament could get out was along the wires feeding current to the filament and also along the insulators which support the filament. (Less heat passes through a vacuum compared with the flow of heat that can pass through an inert gas.) So the feed wires and insulators got very much hotter compared to the temperature they reach in modern light bulbs. This caused the old vacuum light bulbs, which glowed at a much higher temperature than radio tubes, to have a much shorter useful life compared to vacuum radio tubes.. Re the answer given below, if the filament really was made from a material that has a negative temperature coefficient (as temperature increases, resistance decreases) then the decreasing resistance would cause more and more current to be taken as the lamp heated up and the temperature would get higher and higher in a runaway manner until either the power supply's breaker would trip or (more likely) the light bulb's filament would simply explode!. In fact the filament has to be made from a material that has a positive temperature coefficient. (As temperature increases, resistance increases.) Then, as the bulb's temperature rises, its filament's increasing resistance causes less current to be taken than when it was cold. Quite quickly a stable "steady-state" temperature and "running" resistance is reached so that the bulb simply continues to give out a steady amount of light according to the current it is taking from the electricity supply..

Resisting Social Change, how does it happen . The fact is, some people resist social change. In the midst of continual technological breakthroughs, some people harbor vested interests (financial or otherwise) in maintaining the status quo. These people lose something in response to social chang…e. For example, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) has lobbied incessantly to prevent clinical psychologists from gaining prescription privileges.. Other people may feel insecure about trying to adapt to an ever-changing society. Economic factors take a hand in resisting social change. Conflict theorists complain that capitalistic systems encourage owners to protect their assets at the expense of workers. Protecting their assets may mean ignoring safety standards or putting pressure on government officials to lessen state regulations.. Cultural factors also play a central role in resistance to social change. When technology enters a society, non-material culture must respond to changes in material culture. Culture lag refers to the time during which previous aspects of a society still need to "catch up" to cultural advances. For example, certain religious groups, such as the Roman Catholic Church, promote large families and regard contraceptive methods that limit family size as immoral. In other words, a lag exists between aspects of non-material culture (religious beliefs) and material culture (reproductive technologies).. Social movements typically question a culture's established state of affairs. In the United States today, both the gay rights and feminist movements challenge society's definitions of "natural order"-that heterosexuality is the only sexual standard and that females should submit to males. Resistance to such social movements remains predictably strong.. SOCIAL CHANGE DEFINED Social change refers to any significant alteration over time in behavior patterns and cultural values and norms. By "significant" alteration, sociologists mean changes yielding profound social consequences. Examples of significant social changes having long-term effects include the industrial revolution, the abolition of slavery, and the feminist movement. Today's sociologists readily acknowledge the vital role that social movements play in inspiring discontented members of a society to bring about social change. Efforts to understand the nature of long-term social change, including looking for patterns and causes, has led sociologists to propose the evolutionary, functionalist, and conflict theories of change (discussed in other posts). All theories of social change also admit the likelihood of resistance to change, especially when people with vested interests feel unsettled and threatened by potential changes.

There are various reasons that a person might resist changes intheir behaviors. It might be against their ethical code.
People show tendencies to be "resistant to change". Even inaction becomes an action that reveals resistance. Some of the common causes or descriptions can include: . Inertia - the person cannot go forward or back and any forward movement is restricted. . Apathy - the person has given up on some …level. . Obstinacy - the person refuses to change . Fear - the person is afraid to change . Repel - the person fights efforts others initiate to make the changes . Rebel - the person rebels against any perceived authority who tells him to change (MORE)

Upper management has to LEAD the change. Without the buy-in of upper management, nothing will change. Again, management must LEAD the effort. Management can be convinced if you can put dollars on the problem. But management can be thick-headed, if not actually stupid, so you will need the info-b…ite to reach them. For example: \n. \nHow much does it cost to generate a single paycheck?\n. \nHow much does a new employee cost to hire when compared to retaining a current employee?\n. \nHow much does it cost to use this room for one hour?\n. \nHow much money do we spend sitting in this meeting?\n. \nHow much does employee internet use cost us?\n. \nDon't just tell them to do it this new way, show them how it is in their best interests to do it this new way. Let the organization "realize" they need the change and then guide them to the tools to make the changes. As consensus is reached, the change will finally drive itself. (MORE)
Employees may resist change because of fear of losing their currentpositions. They may also resist because they believe the changewill put them under more scrutiny or put more pressure on them.
Buffers are a mixture of a weak acid and its conjugate base (or weak base and its conjugate acid: in either case a pair of species linked by exchange of a proton). The acid reacts with (small amounts of) added base while the base reacts with (small amounts of) added acid: therefore pH change is mini…mal while some of each component remains. (MORE)

Simply because they are afraid of changes. Every person have a position and in general people are not sure they can retain there position in changed circumstances that is why they resist changes.
Air resistance acts in the opposite direction of an object's motion to reduce its speed.

The ability of a community to resist change is called stability. Itis the capability of a community to resist and rebound from change.
This is newton's second law. An object in motion will stay in motion unless another force acts on it. Answer2: Inertia. Newton's 1st law states no force , no change or no change no force.

Will current flow in a higher resistance or in lower resistance if they are connected in parallel to a voltage source?
Current will always flow in both resistors, but the one with the lower resistance will have more current flow through it. The value of the current in each resistor is calculated by dividing the voltage of the source by the resistance of the individual resistor. As long as the capability of the… power source isn't exceeded, the current through each resistor isn't affected by the presence of the other resistor. Said another way, if two resistors are connected in parallel across a source, neither one "cares" that the other resistor is connected across the source. The two resistors work independently. (MORE)
An inductor charges and discharges. When an alternating current come up, the positive signal of the current quickly charges up the inductor. when the negative signal part of the same cycle comes up the inductor develops a potential to opposes it. this is because any charge developed opposes if there… is a change or break or whatever for that matter, in supply. so, the negative signal which is basically a change in signal when approaches the inductor the charge developed across it opposes it and as the charge developed thanks to the positive part of the signal is used up to oppose the negative part of the same signal, basically the charge is zero. thus an alternating current or high frequency current for that matter, does not pass through an inductor. Comment I think the above answer has confused inductance for capacitance! No charges are involved with inductors. Whenever current changes in an inductive circuit, a voltage is induced into that circuit. The magnitude of the induced voltage depends on the rate of change of current. The direction of the induced voltage is such that it opposes the change in current -for example, if the current is reducing in value, then the induced voltage will try to maintain that current.

An ideal voltage source has zero internal resistance so that thevoltage stays constant with any load current. A practical voltagesource should have less than 5% voltage drop at the rated loadcurrent.
Such a solution is called as buffer solution . For example:- CH 3 COOH and CH 3 COONa solution is a buffer solution.
Resistivity of a wire of a certain material is independent of the wire's length. The only thing that would change is resistance.

Change often requires a significant amount of work in terms of adjusting the project scope, technical requirements, cost review, schedule review, resource management issue and quality factors. The later that change happens in the lifecycle of a project that bigger the impact and higher likelihood th…at the cost of the change will be significantly higher, and thus higher chance that the project will fail to achieve the required schedule or come in at the specified cost. Project Managers often resist change especially if it involves 'scope creep' or the addition of new requirements, because they can be a major cause of project failure. Change can be beneficial, but it is not seen that way all the time. Many projects would fail if no changes were allowed, however the important point to note is that change must always be controlled, evaluated, reviewed, the full impact understood, recorded, authorised by the appropriate authority and fully implemented across the project. If change is implemented properly it works, if it is not implemented properly it can be catastrophic for the project and sometimes for the company. (MORE)
Could be the wires, but more so anything that makes heat or light, like a stove, light bulb, or electric blanket.
If you stretch a wire, it would become longer, and therefore thinner. The cross sectional area will decrease and so the resistance will increase. in the real world, if it's stranded wire, the strands will likely break. Solid wire would not stretch evenly, and in either case insulation will tear, …so I wouldn't recommend stretching a wire. (MORE)
It isn't. If you're using superposition, you open circuit current sources and short voltage sources; this is because the current source declares the current that will be flowing through that branch. Both current and voltage sources have a finite internal resistance.
Ideal sources do not exist in reality, they are simply theoreticalentities to aid in the process of circuit analysis and design. Inactual usage they are used as parts of models of real sources. In a first approximation of a real source we must add internalresistance to the ideal source (at higher l…evels of approximationother things like parasitic reactances must be added to, butinternal resistance is good enough for the first approximation): . on a voltage source the internal resistance is added in serieswith the ideal source to drop some of the voltage . on a current source the internal resistance is added inparallel with the ideal source to bypass some of the current Now the source resistance as seen by the load (yes, that may soundlike a strange concept but it is correct) must equal the internal resistance of the source. To find the resistanceof the ideal sources themselves we must analyze the resultingseries and parallel circuits so that they meet these criteria: . in the series circuit of the real voltage source the sum of theinternal resistance and the resistance of the ideal voltage sourcemust be equal to the internal resistance. therefore theresistance of the ideal voltage source must be zero . . in the parallel circuit of the real current source the internalresistance in parallel with the resistance of the ideal currentsource must equal the internal resistance. if the resistance of theideal current source had any finite value then the resistance ofthe internal resistance in parallel with the resistance of theideal current source would be less than the internal resistance. therefore the resistance of the ideal current source must be infinite .

Static electricity is inexhaustible. It's just the result ofseparating charges, and all matter is composed of charges.

It's not a source of anything, any morethan, say, laziness or obstinacy are. (MORE)
When a voltage source, such as a battery or a generator, is on open circuit -in other words, when it is not supplying a load- the voltage appearing across its terminals is called its 'open circuit voltage' and corresponds numerically to its electromotive force. However, when the voltage source …supplies current to a load, that current also passes through the voltage source itself . This causes an internal voltage drop, which is the product of this current and the voltage source's internal resistance. This voltage drop acts in the opposite direction to the electromotive force and reduces the source's terminal voltage. This internal voltage drop will increase, of course, if either the load current increases or the internal resistance increases. So, in order to keep that the source's internal voltage drop is as low as possible, its internal resistance must be as low as possible. In the case of a battery, the internal resistance is due to the ionic resistance of the electrolyte/plates, whereas in a generator it is due to the resistance of the windings. (MORE)
It isn't. The internal impedance of a current source is high. In an ideal one it would be infinite. A voltage source, however, has a low internal impedance, ideally zero ohms.
Current source means current generator for a circuit. An ideal current source gives all current to the circuit, but practically a current source does n't give all current to the circuit, instead, a source resistor is connected in parallel to the current source to indicate the current drop.
When a load current flows, as well as flowing through the load, it also flows, internally, through the voltage source. A load current, therefore, causes an internal voltage drop which, by Kirchhoff's Voltage Law, opposes, the electromotive force of the source. The larger the load current, the greate…r the internal voltage drop. So, the terminal voltage of a voltage source will decrease as the load current increases. By definition, the e.m.f. of the source is equal to the sum of all the voltage drops (including the internal voltage drop) around any closed loop supplied by that source. (MORE)

Your question is confusing -is the inductor supplied with a.c. or d.c.?

Resistivity is a property of a substance, and doesn't depend on the dimensions of a sample. If the length of a conductor is doubled, then its resistance doubles but its resistivity doesn't change.
for the same reason that internal resistance of voltage source is in series. the internal resistance is modeling a nonideal characteristic of the source. in the current source the nonideal internal resistance reduces current delivery to load, so it must be in parallel to bypass some of the curre…nt around the load. in the voltage source the nonideal internal resistance blocks voltage delivery to load, so it must be in series to drop some of the voltage before the load.

A resistor is a poorer conductor of electricity than a metal wire ... thus it "resists" the flow of current. The higher the resistance, the lower the current ... as in I = E/R
Resistance can be changed by strain over time and changes in the temperature. Resistance thermometers are sensors that are used to measure temperature by correlating the resistance of the RTD elements.
The resistance value for linear resistance is changed by changing the wavelength of the current or by installing additional resistors in the circuit. This restricts the amount of electricity which flows through the wiring. The resistance value for the linear resistance can be changed through strain …over time. It can also be changed by changes in temperatures, such as going from hot to cold. (MORE)
Resistance is the ratio of voltage to current . If you increase the resistance while maintaining the same voltage, then the current will decrease, and vice-versa .
Water cannot resist a temperature change, however it has a highthermal capacity, (it takes a lot of energy to heat it up).
