Distinguish, differentiate, compare and explain what is the difference between resistance and resistivity in physics. Comparison and Differences.

Difference Between Resistance and Resistivity

1. The property of the conductor due to which it opposes a flow of current through it is called resistance. The resistivity of a conductor is the resistance of a conductor of unit length and unit area of cross section.

2. The SI unit of electrical resistance is Ohm. The SI unit of resistivity is Ohm-metre

3. The resistance of a conductor depends on its length and area of cross section. The resistivity of a conductor does not depend on its length and area of cross section.
