They are vector quantities, with a phase angle. We all know that any solenoid resistance we measure with an ohmmeter is going to be only a small portion of the actual operating impedance, due to the inductance of the solenoid coil and its magnetic core.
If a solenoid draws 0.2 amps with 24 volts applied, it shows an impedance of 120 ohms.
