Conducting power; -- the reciprocal of resistance. A suggested unit is the mho, the reciprocal of the ohm.
A measure of the ability of a solution to carry electricity; the reciprocal of the electrical resistance. The unit of conductance is the ohm (reciprocal ohm).
the opposite of resistance; a good conductor has a low resistance; defined as the reciprocal of resistance or as the quotient, current through the object divided by the potential difference across it. Usual symbol: . The SI unit is the siemens, symbol S.
A rapid method of estimating the dissolved solids content of a sample. The measurement indicates the capacity of a sample to carry an electric current, which is related to the concentration of ionized substances in the water. A measure of the conduction power of a solution equal to the reciprocal of the resistance. The resistance is expressed in ohms and the conductance is expressed in mhos. Also called SPECIFIC CONDUCTANCE.
a material's capacity to conduct electricity; measured as the reciprocal of electrical resistance
The ability of an electrical conductor to pass current; the reciprocal of resistance. Often used in exit type of switches where simple hand contact enables the release of locked door.
Refers to the rate of ion travel thru the channel and is often measured in siemens (S). Ions with high conductances are often said to have binding sites in the channel that are relatively high in free energy compared to an ion with lower conductance (which sticks more tightly to binding sites). Conductance is often designated as current divided by voltage, and since voltage is usually "clamped" in patch clamp experiments, relates directly to current of ions.
The ability of a circuit to allow current to flow. The unit is the siemen (S).
A measure of the ability to conduct electricity. Inverse of Resistance.
The real (non-reactive) part of the admittance of a circuit, where admittance is the reciprocal of impedance.
The ability of a conductor to carry an electric charge. The ratio of the current flow to the potential difference causing the flow. The reciprocal of resistance.
A rapid method of estimating the dissolved solids content of water supply by determining the capacity of a water sample to carry an electrical current. Conductivity is a measure of the ability of a solution to carry and electrical current.
The ability to conduct electricity. Defined by G =Re (I/V) where G is the conductance in Siemens, I is the current in Amps, and V is the voltage in Volts.
The measure of the ability of a liquid or solid to carry an electrical current.
A measure of the ability of a material to conduct electrical current.  The reciprocal of the resistance of the material, expressed in siemens (mhos).
The measure of the ability of a material or substance to carry electrical current.
The ability to conduct current. It is equal to amperes per volt, or the reciprocal of resistance, and is measured in siemens (metric) or mhos (English). G = 1/R
The ability of a material to conduct electricity. Conductance is the inverse of resistance.
The degree by which a wire or other component can conduct current. The unit value is the mho, and it is the reciprocal of resistance.
A metal's capacity to transmit electric current.
Measure of the ability of a solution to conduct electricity; thus it is the reciprocal of the resistance.
The reciprocal of resistance expressed in term of Siemans (formally mhos)
The measure of the ability of a solution to carry an electrical current. (See Equivalent Conductance)
When a voltage potential is placed across a wire, the number of electrons that will flow will depend on the degree of freedom of electrons in the conducting wire. The ability of the wire to conduct is called conductance, but this property of the wire is normally considered in terms of how it restricts the flow of electrons, that is its resistance. Resistance is measured in ohms (W).
The product of conductivity and thickness [Siemens].
