Resistivity is the characteristic property of the material by which it resists the amount of current through it.
It depends upon the length, area of cross-section and nature of the material of the given material, and physical conditions like temperature.
It only depends upon the nature of the material and physical conditions like temperature.
Its SI unit is ohm Its SI unit is ohm meter.
It is denoted by R. It is denoted by ρ (rho)
