Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Conductivity to Resistivity Measure (conversion)

:( :( Please if any have a "use friendly" table to convert conductivity values to resistivity (or vicerversa) me.....a solution......

-conductivity is siemens/meter
-resistivity is ohm*meter

Conductance G (siemens) = 1 / Resistance (ohms)
or siemens = 1/ohms

So conductivity is the inverse of resistivity, you don't need any table. More an electrical wire is resistive, less it conduct etc.

Example: The conductivity of a wire with resistivity of 6 ohms*meter is
G = 1/(6 ohms*meter) = 0.166 S/meter.
