Enter the conductivity of an element into the calculator to determine the resistivity.
Conductivity to Resistivity Formula
The following formula is used to convert conductivity to resistivity.
R = 1/C
- Where R is the resistivity
- C is the conductivity
Conductivity to Resistivity Definition
Conductivity is defined as the reciprocal of resistivity, therefore, the resistivity is also the reciprocal of conductivity.
How to convert conductivity to resistivity?
- First, determine the conductivity.
Using the calculator linked above, calculate the conductivity.
- Next, calculate the resistivity.
Calculate the resistivity using the equation above.
Conductivity and resistivity are opposites. The former being the ability of a material to transmit electricity, and the latter being the resistance to transmittance.
