  1. Conductivity

    The relative power of conducting the electric current possessed by different substances. A path for the current through the ether is opened by the presence of a body of proper quality, and this quality, probably correlated to opacity, is termed conductivity. There is no perfect conductor, all offer some resistance, q. v., and there is hardly any perfect non-conductor. It is the reverse and reciprocal of resistance.
