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.Cyclopedia of Telephony & Telegraphy Vol. 1|Kempster Miller
This numerical measure of the resistivity is called the mass-resistivity.
Resistivity is a quality in which material substances differ very widely.
The entire matter resolves itself into one of individual tolerance, resistivity, and constitution.All About Coffee|William H. Ukers
