Definition of conductance in English:


Syllabification: con·duct·ance
Pronunciation: /kənˈdəktəns


The degree to which an object conducts electricity, calculated as the ratio of the current that flows to the potential difference present. This is the reciprocal of the resistance, and is measured in siemens or mhos. (Symbol: G).
