Ohm Metre

A unit of resistivity, measuring the extent to which a substance offers resistance to passage of an electric current.

The resistivity of a conductor in ohm metres is defined to be its resistance (in ohms) multiplied by its cross-sectional area (in square metres) divided by its length (in metres).
