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

\(\large{ \gamma  =  \frac{ I }{ R } }\)   

Where:

 Units English Metric
\(\large{ \sigma }\) (Greek symbol sigma) = electric conductivity - \(\large{\frac{S}{m}}\)
\(\large{ R }\) = electric resistance \(\large{\frac{V}{I}}\) \(\large{\Omega}\)
\(\large{ I }\) = electric current \(\large{\frac{V}{R}}\) \(\large{I}\)
