I shall now describe certain characteristic differences of conductivity exhibited by tissues in different conditions.
Great divergence is shown in the results of experiments in the conductivity of wood.
In continuing to increase the temperature of the fluid selenium very gradually but steadily, its conductivity increased again.
This to some extent impairs the conductivity of the circuit.
The minimum current which induces a perceptible change of conductivity varies somewhat in different specimens.
Hence we may conclude that the conductivity of any salt is an ionic property.
The tonic condition of a tissue has an influence on conductivity.
These are the proportions that give the maximum of conductivity.
A conductor having a resistance of 100 ohms has a conductivity of .01 mho.
The conductivity of a wire depends upon its material, its cross-section, its length, and its temperature.
conductivity con·duc·tiv·i·ty (kŏn'dŭk-tĭv'ĭ-tē)
The ability or power to conduct or transmit heat, electricity, or sound.
The ability of a body structure to transmit an electric impulse, especially the ability of a nerve to transmit a wave of excitation.
