^Resistivity of conductors (ρ)

Resistivity of conductors (ρ)

Resistance per unit length per unit cross sectional area of a material is called its resistivity or specific resistance, for metals it is  (a) .

Its reciprocal is called conductivity or specific conductance (σ). Both ρ & σ are independent of length, thickness, & shape or geometry.
