Conductivity is the measure of the ability of a conductor to carry electric current and it is defined as the ratio of the amount of charge passing through unit area of the conductor (perpendicular to the current direction) per second divided by the electric field intensity (the force on a unit charge).
Conductivity is the reciprocal of resistivity and it is therefore commonly expressed in units of siemens per meter.
