- elastic + -ance
- (physics) Coined by Oliver Heaviside. There is a force–voltage electromechanical analogy in which capacitance corresponds to the inverse of a spring constant; the smaller the spring constant, the more “elastic” (yielding, flexible) the spring is.
- (physics) An electrical property that is the inverse of capacitance
- (mechanics) The inverse of compliance
- (medicine) A measurement of the tendency of the lung, urinary bladder, gallbladder or other cavity to recoil inwards. Opposite of compliance
