Electric Resistivity / Electric Conductivity
The resistivity is a material property that describes how well the material isolates
electricity. It is measured in units of resistance × length or
resistance × area / length, respectively.
SI unit is the ohm metre
Usage: Type the value to convert into the field, behind which you find the unit. Move the mouse over a unit or click on it to read its full name. Click on any empty space in the window or on the "calculate" button. Read the result in the other fields. Use the "reset" button to reset your calculation.
Example: What is the electric conductivity of a material (tungsten) with an electric resistivity of 5.6·10-8 Ωm? Type "5.6e-8" into the field in the first row, behind which you find "Ω · m". Click on any empty space in the window or on the "calculate" button. Read the result in the field, behind which "S / m" is written (1.79·107 S / m or 17.9 MS / m).
