Electric Resistivity Converter


Welcome to the Electric Resistivity Converter, a powerful and easy-to-use tool designed to help you convert resistivity values between different units. Whether you’re working with ohm-meters (Ω·m), ohm-centimeters (Ω·cm), or ohm-inches (Ω·in), this tool provides quick and accurate conversions to support your engineering, physics, or general scientific work.

Steps to Use the Tool

  1. Enter Value: Input the numerical value of the resistivity you wish to convert in the designated field.
  2. Select From Unit: Choose the unit of the value you have entered from the drop-down menu. The available options are ohm-meters (Ω·m), ohm-centimeters (Ω·cm), and ohm-inches (Ω·in).
  3. Select To Unit: Choose the unit to which you want to convert the value. The same options (ohm-meters, ohm-centimeters, ohm-inches) are available.
  4. Convert: Click the ‘Convert’ button to perform the conversion. The result will be displayed below the button.

Functionality of the Tool

The Electric Resistivity Converter tool performs precise unit conversions based on established conversion factors:

  • 1 Ω·m = 100 Ω·cm
  • 1 Ω·m = 39.3701 Ω·in
  • 1 Ω·cm = 0.01 Ω·m
  • 1 Ω·cm = 0.393701 Ω·in
  • 1 Ω·in = 0.0254 Ω·m
  • 1 Ω·in = 2.54 Ω·cm

The tool checks if the input value is valid and ensures that conversions between different units are handled correctly.

Benefits of Using This Tool

  • Accuracy: Provides precise conversions between units.
  • Convenience: Eliminates the need for manual calculations.
  • Time-Saving: Converts values instantly, improving productivity.
  • User-Friendly: Simple interface that is easy to navigate.
  • Versatility: Useful for a wide range of scientific and engineering applications.


Q: What is electric resistivity? A: Electric resistivity is a measure of a material’s ability to resist the flow of electric current. It is commonly expressed in ohm-meters (Ω·m).

Q: Can this tool convert between units other than ohm-meters, ohm-centimeters, and ohm-inches? A: Currently, the tool is designed specifically for these three units. For other units, additional conversion factors would need to be added.

Q: Is there a limit to the value I can input? A: There is no specific limit, but for practical purposes, it’s best to use values within a realistic range for resistivity measurements.

Q: How accurate are the conversions? A: The conversions are based on standard factors and are highly accurate. However, always consider the precision of your input data.

Q: Can I use this tool on my mobile device? A: Yes, the tool is fully responsive and can be used on various devices, including mobile phones and tablets.
