Historical Examples of conductance
The exact correlative terms are resistance and conductance, resistivity and conductivity.Cyclopedia of Telephony & Telegraphy Vol. 1
As conductance is the reciprocal of resistance it is measured by the reciprocal ohm or mho.The Radio Amateur's Hand Book
A. Frederick Collins
This rule may be understood better if we consider the conductance of the conductors in parallel.Physics

- the ability of a system to conduct electricity, measured by the ratio of the current flowing through the system to the potential difference across it; the reciprocal of resistance. It is measured in reciprocal ohms, mhos, or siemensSymbol: G
- A measure of a material's ability to conduct electric charge; the reciprocal of the resistance.
- The ease with which a fluid or gas enters and flows through a conduit, air passage, or respiratory tract.
- A measure of the ability of a material to carry electric current. For direct current, conductance is called conductivity and is equal to 1/R, where R is the resistance of the material. For alternating current, conductance is called admittance. Conductance is measured in mhos. See more at admittance.
