Enter the resistance and cross-sectional area into the calculator to determine the distance. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

## Ohms To Distance Formula

The following formula could be used to calculate the distance based on resistivity (Ohms) in a specific context.

D = (R * A) / ρ

Variables:

- D is the distance (meters)
- R is the resistance (Ohms)
- A is the cross-sectional area of the material (square meters)
- ρ is the resistivity of the material (Ohm meters)

To calculate the distance, multiply the resistance by the cross-sectional area of the material, then divide the result by the resistivity of the material.

## How to Calculate Ohms To Distance?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Ohms To Distance.

- First, determine the resistance (R) in Ohms.
- Next, determine the cross-sectional area (A) of the material in square meters.
- Next, determine the resistivity (ρ) of the material in Ohm meters.
- Next, gather the formula from above = D = (R * A) / ρ.
- Finally, calculate the Ohms To Distance (D).
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

Resistance (R) = 10 Ohms

Cross-sectional area (A) = 5 square meters

Resistivity (ρ) = 2 Ohm meters
