The resistivity of non-metallic conductors is in all cases higher than that of any pure metal.
The exact correlative terms are resistance and conductance, resistivity and conductivity.
This numerical measure of the resistivity is called the mass-resistivity.
resistivity is a quality in which material substances differ very widely.
It varies a good deal in composition according to manufacture, and the resistivity of different specimens is not identical.
The entire matter resolves itself into one of individual tolerance, resistivity, and constitution.
A measure of the potential electrical resistance of a conductive material. It is determined experimentally using the equation ρ = RA/l, where R is the measured resistance of some length of the material, A is its cross-sectional area (which must be uniform), and l is its length. It is measured in ohm-meters.
