Electrical resistance

Technical paper 35: Moisture measurement in the historic environment, published by Historic Environment Scotland in 2021, defines electrical resistance as: ‘A measurement of the impedance of an electrical charge to flow in a certain material; the reciprocal of conductance.’

It defines electrical resistivity as: ‘A material property representing the degree to which a material impedes the transfer of electricity; the reciprocal of conductivity.’
