Homework Help: Resistivity of conducting putty?

  1. Jul 14, 2012 #1
    I'm trying to find the resistivity of conducting putty at room temperature and I've been looking all over google with no success. There isn't really anything more I can do to work it out so I'm wondering if anyone here knows. Thanks :)

    Hi Navras! :smile:
    hmm … you're not very good at using google :redface:

    the first hit for "resistivity of conducting putty" is http://www.ibotz.com/conducting-putty.html which says of its product …
    A cylinder 60mm long and 20mm in diameter has a resistance of approximately 20 Ohms.​

    … so what is the resistivity? :smile:
