electrical conductance
1. The ability of a system to conduct electricity, measured by the ratio of the current flowing through the system to the potential difference across it; the reciprocal of resistance.
2. The real part of the admittance of a circuit; when the impedance contains no re-actance, as in a direct-current circuit, it is the reciprocal of resistance, and so it is a measure of the ability of the circuit to conduct electricity.
