Electrical conductance is the reciprocal of electrical resistance. It is a measure of how easily electricity flows along a certain path through an object. The SI derived unit of conductance is the siemens (symbol S, equal to 1/Ω; alias the "mho"). Oliver Heaviside[] coined the term in September 1885.
