Resistance

Natural or genetic ability to avoid or repel attack by parasite or to withstand toxic effects of pesticide (microbial or chemical).
Various types of inherited (or constitutive) resistance to pathogens are recognised in plants, but the terms used to describe them have a multiplicity of meanings to different workers. The following terms have been defined according to their most common and accepted usage:
Resistance: a host plant can be considered resistant if it has the ability to suppress or retard virus activity. Resistant is the opposite of susceptible and may be quantitatively identified as high (extreme), moderate or low, depending on the effectiveness of the protective mechanism.
Tolerance: a host response to virus infection that results in negligible or mild symptom expression, but relatively normal levels of virus concentration and movement within the host compared with a susceptible host.
Immunity (immune): terms used to describe absolute exemption from infection by a specific pathogen. An immune plant is not attacked at all by the particular virus and is a non-host of the virus concerned.
Field resistance: resistance shown by a host plant under natural field conditions, even though the same host may be susceptible to the virus under experimental conditions.
Horizontal resistance: resistance that protects a host against all genetic variants of a pathogen to a greater or lesser degree.
Vertical resistance: resistance that protects a host against only specific strains of a pathogen.
Continuous resistance: a response involving a gradient from severe infection to extreme resistance in a segregating population.
Discontinuous resistance: a response involving distinctive, clear-cut symptoms in a segregating population, which is often controlled by a single dominant gene....

Resistance

Is a price level where stocks, bonds, currencies, and commodities are expected to receive sell orders. At its simplest application it is the ask or offer side of a quote. On a more complex level it refers to the upper boundary of some described trading range.

Resistance

1) That property of a conductor by which it opposes the flow of electric current, resulting in the generation of heat in the conducting material, usually expressed in ohms.
2) Opposition to the flow of current in one direction or which does not represent different opposition for signals of different frequencies.

Resistance is a forecasted price level where the rate of exchange should encounter selling pressure, which should stop the price/rate from rising any further.

Resistance

The electrical resistance of a conductor is defined by:where I is the current flowing through the conductor and V is the potential difference across the conductor.The power disipated by a resistor is given by Joule's law:whereW = power disipated [Watt]I = current [Ampere]R = resistance [Ohm]V = potential difference across resistor [Volt]

resistance

Resistance (R) is electric potential difference divided by current when there is no electromotive force in the conductor. This definition applies to direct current. More generally, resistance is defined as the real part of impedance.

Resistance

Measured in ohms. The equivalent of friction in water. Calculation: Resistance = Volts divided by Amps. When current flows through a conductor it creates heat because of resistance.
