Q: What is the relationship between Resistivity and Conductivity?
- Show AnswerHide Answer
Resistivity : Resistivity is a measure of the resistance to the flow of electrons. Conductivity : Conductivity is just the inverse of resistivity, σ = 1/ρ, where σ is conductivity and ρ is resistivity. Example: Think of a pipe and water, the bigger the pipe, the easier water can flow and thus the lower the resistance.
