Electric Conductivity

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Electrical Engineering

Electric conductivity, abbreviated as G, is the amount of current that a material can conduct.  Depending on the material, the transfer rate will vary.  Lower the resistance, higher the conductivity.  Higher the resistance, lower the conductivity. 

 

Electric Conductivity formula

\(\large{ \gamma  =  \frac{ I }{ R } }\) 
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ \sigma }\) (Greek symbol sigma) = conductivity - \(\large{\frac{S}{m}}\)
\(\large{ R }\) = resistance \(\large{\Omega}\) \(\large{\frac{kg-m^2}{s^3-A^2}}\)
\(\large{ I }\) = current \(\large{I}\) \(\large{\frac{C}{s}}\)
