A group of wires or ribbons of wiring used to interconnect electronic systems and subsystems .
The property of an electrical circuit that opposes changes in voltage .
The opposition, expressed in ohms, offered to the flow of an alternating
current by capacitance. The symbol for capacitive reactance is X C  .
An electrical device capable of storing electrical energy in an electrostatic field .
This filter is used on extremely high-voltage, low-current power supplies and
also where the ripple frequency is not critical .
