Enter the conductivity of an element into the calculator to determine the resistivity.

## Conductivity to Resistivity Formula

The following formula is used to convert a 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 or resistivity, therefore, the resistivity is also the the reciprocal of conductivity.

## Example

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.

## FAQ

**What’s the difference between conductivity and resistivity?**

Conductivity and resistivity are opposites. The former being the ability of a material to transmit electricity, and the latter being the resistance to transmittance.
