What is Volume Resistivity ?

Volume Resistivity ( ρv ) expresses the resistance per unit volume of a sample and is also called specific resistance. It is the term mostly used for material classification (Ω∙cm). Each material has a unique characteristic value for volume resistivity.

Volume Resistivity ρv [Ω∙cm] = R [Ω] ∙ RCF ∙ t [cm]
