Electrical 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. 

 

Electrical Conductivity formula

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

Where:

\(\large{ G }\) = electrical conductivity

\(\large{ R }\) = resistance

\(\large{ I }\) = current
