# 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
