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[[1]] coined the term in September 1885.

Electrical conductance should not be confused with conduction, which is the mechanism by which charge flows, or with conductivity, which is a property of a material.

Relation to other quantitiesEdit

Conductance is related to susceptance and admittance by the equation:

Y = G + i B \,

where:

The magnitude of admittance is given by:

\left | Y \right | = \sqrt {G^2 + B^2}
