Electrical Resistivity Units

The electrical resistivity units in the electrical resistivity converter are abohm centimeter, circular mil ohm/foot, microohm centimeter, microohm inch, ohm centimeter, ohm inch, ohm meter and statohm centimeter.

The most commonly used units for electrical resistivity, which measures the inherent property of a material to oppose the flow of electric current, are:

Ohm-meter (Ω·m): This is the standard unit for electrical resistivity in the International System of Units (SI). It represents the resistance of a one-meter-long conductor with a cross-sectional area of one square meter.

Ohm-centimeter (Ω·cm): In some contexts, especially in older literature or specific applications, the ohm-centimeter-based unit may be used.

These units are used to quantify the resistance of a material to the flow of electric current. The ohm-meter is the standard unit for electrical resistivity in scientific and engineering contexts. The ohm-centimeter is less commonly used in modern scientific literature but may still be encountered in specific applications.

What is Electrical Resistivity?

The electrical resistivity (volume resistivity) is a measure of how strong the material opposes the flow of electric current. It's the inverse of electrical conductivity.

The Electric resistivity calculation formula:
Resistivity = R (Resistance of material) * A (Cross sectional area) / L (Length of the material)
