What does impeding mean?

Impede means to interfere with, block or slow something. For example, when you are impeding traffic, you are interfering with traffic, blocking or slowing it to less than ande (MORE)

What is the unit of impedence?

Impedance "Z" is measured in Ohms, same as resistance. The only difference is that this form of resistance is frequency dependent where induction or capacitances are involved. (MORE)

What is an impedance relay?

Impedance relays are used whenever over-current relays do not provide adequate protection. They function even if the short circuit current is relatively low. The speed of oper (MORE)

Wind Pushes Waterfall Up

The winds were so strong in this town that they impeded the flow of a waterfall and caused the water to be pushed back. Instead of it cascading down as it normally would, wate (MORE)

Unicycle Wheel Fail

This unicyclist tried to jump over a staircase from a porch to the ground, but an equipment malfunction caused him to crash to the ground and broke his unicycle, impeding any (MORE)

What is impedance?

If you pretend that the signals in electric circuits are of the form A*exp(s*t), where A and s are constants, and t is time, then derivatives of the signal and integrations of (MORE)

What is impedence?

Impedance is the measurement of resistance that a circuit gives to  current, which flows due to applied voltage. Impedance refers to  the ratio of voltage to current and app (MORE)

What is percentage impedance?

In electrical engineering, the percentage impedance of a  transformer is the voltage drop on a full load, which is expressed  as a percentage of the specified rated voltage. (MORE)
