Resistor imposes a restriction on the movement of alternating current the same way it does to a direct current..


Value of opposition is the same for a resistor in case of both AC and DC.
It, similar to a circuit carrying direct current opposes an alternating current.
It dissipates power as well.
Ohm's law #V = iR# is followed as well where the value of the current #i = i""_(rms)#.

Where #i""_(rms)# is the root mean squared current.
