Line 1: Line 1:
 +Electrical conductivity or specific conductivity is a measure of a material'​s ability to conduct an electric current. When an electrical potential difference is placed across a conductor, its movable charges flow, giving rise to an electric current. The conductivity σ is defined as the ratio of the current density ​ to the electric field strength. ​
