noun

the act of giving entrance
(electrical engineering) the reciprocal of impedance, usually measured in siemens. It can be expressed as a complex quantity, the real part of which is the conductance and the imaginary part the susceptance y
n.

1580s, “the action of admitting,” formed in English from admit + -ance (if from Latin, it would have been *admittence; French uses accès in this sense). Used formerly in senses where admission now prevails. Admissure was used in this sense from mid-15c.
admittance
(ād-mĭt’ns)
A measure of the ability of a circuit or component to allow current flow when exposed to AC voltages (its AC conductance). It is equal to the reciprocal of the impedance of the circuit, just as conductivity is equal to the reciprocal of resistance, and is similarly measured in mhos.
