resistance. Compare with conductivity. The ability of a material to oppose the flow of an electric current, converting electrical energy into heat. The SI unit of resistance is the ohm.
That property of a body or conductor by virtue of which the passage of an electric current is opposed.
The measure of a material's ability to conduct a charge to ground.
During the flow of electricity through a conductor, the loss of electrical energy caused by the collision of electrons with lattice atoms.
a material's opposition to the flow of electric current; measured in ohms
A measurement of properties which limit the ability of a substance to conduct electricity
the measure of the difficulty an electric current will have passing through a given material.
The resistance of the flow of electricity through material. Measured in ohms.
Electrical resistance is a measure of the degree to which an electrical component opposes the passage of current. It is the ratio of the potential difference (i.e. voltage) across an electric component (such as a resistor) to the current passing through that component. See also: Resistor, Volt
Resistance against a conductor passing a flow of electricity.
The ability of a material to slow down the flow of an electric current.
The difficulty electrons have moving through a conductor or substance.
Electrical resistance is a measure of the degree to which an object opposes the passage of an electric current. The SI unit of electrical resistance is the ohm. Its reciprocal quantity is electrical conductance measured in siemens.
