This is a general question regarding impedance in circuit analysis.

I know that in order to find the total impedance of a circuit, you transform each element characteristic into the frequency domain, i.e.,

[tex] R\rightarrow Z_R = R[/tex],

[tex] C\rightarrow Z_C = \frac{1}{Cs} [/tex],

[tex] L\rightarrow Z_L = Ls [/tex].

And then sum up the quantities properly to get an equivalent impedance.

My question is, what happens if you transform this quantity back using an inverse transform? Do you get a real resistance value?
