### Synonyms: electrical-resistance

Anything about electrical resistance, i.e. the electrical parameter that relates currents in conductors and the voltage drop they generate. It's also a measure of the opposition that a conductor exerts on the currents flowing through it.

Resistance is the main parameter of a resistor, but it's also a parameter used in other situations like the description of parasitic effects in the practical realization of circuits (e.g. the resistance of the winding of an inductor or the resistance of the traces on a PCB).
