Enter the resistance in Ohms into the calculator to determine the conductance in Siemens. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Ohms To Siemens Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the conversion from Ohms to Siemens.

S = 1 / R


  • S is the conductance in Siemens (S)
  • R is the resistance in Ohms (Ω)

To calculate the conductance in Siemens, take the reciprocal of the resistance in Ohms. This means dividing 1 by the resistance value.

What is Ohms To Siemens?

Ohms to Siemens is a conversion from the unit of electrical resistance (Ohms) to the unit of electrical conductance (Siemens). These two units are reciprocals of each other, meaning that one Ohm is equal to one inverse Siemens and vice versa. This conversion is used in electrical engineering to easily switch between measuring how much a material resists or conducts electrical current.

How to Calculate Ohms To Siemens?

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

  1. First, determine the resistance in Ohms (Ω).
  2. Next, use the formula S = 1 / R to calculate the conductance in Siemens (S).
  3. Finally, calculate the Ohms To Siemens.
  4. After inserting the resistance value and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
