Deutsch: Widerstand / Português: Resistance / Français: Rêsistance
In the industrial and industry context, "resistance" refers to the opposition or hindrance to the flow of electrical current, heat, or fluid through a material or substance. Resistance is a fundamental property of many materials and can have important implications for the performance, safety, and efficiency of industrial and manufacturing operations.
Examples of resistance in the industrial context include:
- Electrical resistance, the hindrance to the flow of electrical current through a conductor, such as a wire or circuit board.
- Thermal resistance, the hindrance to the flow of heat through a material, such as insulation or a heat sink.
- Fluid resistance, the hindrance to the flow of a fluid, such as a gas or liquid, through a pipe or channel.
- Mechanical resistance, the hindrance to the movement of an object or material, such as friction or stiffness.
- Chemical resistance, the hindrance to the chemical reaction of a material, such as corrosion resistance or oxidation resistance.
