  Impedance
For a pure resistor, Z = R. Because the phase affects the impedance and because the contributions of capacitors and inductors differ in phase from resistive components by 90 degrees, a process like vector addition (phasors) is used to develop expressions for impedance.
Combining impedances has similarities to the combining of resistors, but the phase relationships make it practically necessary to use the complex impedance method for carrying out the operations.
Impedances may be combined using the complex impedance method.

  Impedance matching - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Impedance matching is the practice of attempting to make the output impedance of a source equal to the input impedance of the load to which it is ultimately connected, usually in order to maximise the power transfer and minimise reflections from the load.
In general, impedance is a complex number, which means that loads generally have a resistance to the source that is in phase with the source signal and a reactance to the source that is in quadrature to the phase of the source.
Impedance bridging is unsuitable for RF connections because it causes power to be reflected back to the source from the boundary between the high impedance and the low impedance.

 What is impedance? - a definition from Whatis.com
- Impedance, denoted Z, is an expression of the opposition that an electronic component, circuit, or system offers to alternating and/or direct electric current.Impedance is a vector (two-dimensional)quantity consisting of two independent scalar (one-dimensional) phenomena: resistance and reactance.
Resistance, denoted R, is a measure of the extent to which a substance opposes the movement of electrons among its atoms.The more easily the atoms give up and/or accept electrons, the lower the resistance, which is expressed in positive real number ohms.Resistance is observed with alternating current (AC) and also with direct current (DC).
Suppose a resistance of 100.00 ohms is connected in a series circuit with an inductance of 10.000 ?H.At 4.0000 MHz, the complex impedance is:
