What's the inverse of conductance?

  1. Oct 12, 2011 #1
    I'm doing an experiment today in class and I just wanted to know what's the inverse of conductance (expressed in S) and its units in the SI system.

    Thanks for viewing!

    I'm doing an experiment at university today and I just wanted to know what's the inverse of conductance (expressed in S) and its units in the SI system.
    Thanks!

    Conductance is the inverse of Resistance which is in units of Ohms ( or volts/amps).

    Yes, I agree. I want to know the inverse of conductance. You know, if conductance was S, I want to know what's the name and units of 1/S.

    I guess it's the resistance (?)

    The reciprocal of electric conductance is the resistance, with unit of ohm, (Ω).

    Thank you so much, it's easy, but sometimes I tend to complicate stuff!!

    Cut out the middleman and go straight to Google - thence http://linearcircuitry.com/ResistanceAndConductance.html [Broken]
    and many others.
    Good luck with your Science.
