  2. Permission to enter, the power or right of entrance.
  3. Actual entrance, reception.
  4. [British] [legal] The act of giving possession of a copyhold estate.
  5. [physics] The reciprocal of impedance


  1. Admittance: In electrical engineering, admittance is a measure of how easily a circuit or device will allow a current to flow. It is defined as the inverse of impedance. The SI unit of admittance is the siemens. Oliver Heaviside coined the term admittance in December 1887.
    • also known as 导纳
  2. Admittance: In geophysics, admittance describes the small effects of atmospheric pressure on earth gravity. Studies have also been carried out regarding the gravity of Venus. Admittance in geophysics takes atmospheric pressure as the input and measures small changes in the gravitational field as the output. Geophysics admittance is commonly measured in μGal/mbar. These units convert according to 1 Gal = 0.
