(a) Conductivity :
1. (a) According to Ohms law the electrical resistance of a conductor i.e. the passage of
current is equal to the potential difference, (V) divided by the electric current (I).

(c) The electrical resistance (R) of a conductor is linearly proportional to its length (l)
and inversely proportional to its area of cross section (a),

The proportionality constant (ρ) is called resistivity of the conductor.
(d) If l = 1m and a = 1m2 then R = ρ
(e) Thus, the resistivity of a conductor (ρ) is defined as the resistance of the conductor
that is 1m long and 1m2 in cross-sectional area.

(g) If l = 1m and a = 1m2 then k = G. Thus, conductivity (k) is defined as the
conductance of unit cube of a solution of an electrolyte.

(h) Combinations of eq. (iii) and (iv) gives, k =

Thus, conductivity (k) is the inverse of resistivity (ρ).
