Convert between units of conductance
What is conductance?
Conductance measures how easily an electrical current can flow through a substance or material. It is the reciprocal of resistance and is used to quantify the conductivity of a substance.
Conductance is used in:
Electrical Engineering: It is crucial in designing and analyzing electrical circuits, components, and systems. It helps engineers understand the flow of electricity through conductors, semiconductors, and insulators and optimize the performance of electrical devices and equipment.
Materials Science: Conductance plays a significant role in materials science for characterizing the electrical properties of materials. Researchers study the conductivity of different materials and develop new materials with specific electrical properties for various applications, such as electronics, energy storage, and sensors.
Chemistry: Conductance is used in chemistry to study the conductive properties of electrolytes and solutions. It helps chemists understand the behavior of ions in solution and analyze chemical reactions involving the transfer of charge.
Conductance is measured in units called siemens (S), named after the German physicist Ernst Werner von Siemens. The siemens is defined as one ampere per volt (A/V) and is the reciprocal of resistance, which is measured in ohms (Ω)or mhos (ohms spelled backward).
Use the simple online tool above to convert siemens and mhos to abmho, gemmho, statmho, micromho, kilosiemens megaseimens, microsiemens, millisiemens.
