Hi
I am very confused how can measure voltage drop of a sheet if 1 Ampere is passed and the sheet has a resistance of 0,01 ohm in sq does it matter the thickness of the sheet ?

How to measure voltage drop
He wants the pre calculated formula for plan review it sounds like:
Very simple srkn: 2k x length x I current / cm circular mil or its equal in sq in/mm = vd
