Electrical resistivity and conductivity Wikipedia

Electrical resistivity (also called specific electrical resistance or volume resistivity) and its inverse, electrical conductivity, is a fundamental property of a material that quantifies how strongly it resists or conducts electric current.A low resistivity indicates a material that readily allows electric current. Resistivity is commonly represented by the Greek letter ρ ().
