1. The electrical resistance offered by a material to the flow of electric current, times the cross-sectional area of current flow, and per unit length of current path; the reciprocal of the conductivity.
2. The ability of a material to resist or to inhibit the flow of an electrical current, measured in ohm-meters.
3. A measure of how strongly a material opposes the flow of electric current.
