A resistor has high electrical resistance while a conductor has high conductivity. (Nicolas Thomas)
This is a table of the electrical resistivity and electrical conductivity of several materials. Included are metals, elements, water, and insulators. Electrical resistivity, represented by the Greek letter ρ (rho), is a measure of how strongly a material opposes the flow of electric current. The lower the resistivity, the more readily the […]
