  6. Admittance of an AC circuit is analogous to the conductivity of a DC circuit, it is the reciprocal of the impedance of an AC circuit.
  7. The reciprocal of electrical impedance; admittance is expressed in the same units as conductance (mhos) and impedance in the same units as resistance (ohms).
  8. The measure of how easy alternating current will flow. Measured in siemens.
  9. Particuarly, the giving possession by the lord of copyhold land to a person.
  10. Admittance and Surrender are procedures which relate to Manorial courts whenever copyhold land changes hands, an event which would generally allow the Lord of the Manor to charge a fine.  The powers of manorial courts declined over the centuries but were not finally abolished until 1925. ...
