Description: Electric Conductance Unit Converter

The Electric Conductance Unit Converter is a convenient tool designed to facilitate the conversion between various units used to measure electric conductance. Electric conductance represents the ease with which electric current flows through a conductor. This converter enables users to effortlessly switch between different units of electric conductance, aiding in calculations and comparisons in fields such as electrical engineering, electronics, and physics.

Formula:Electric conductance (GG) is the reciprocal of electric resistance (RR). It is the measure of how easily current flows through a material and is calculated as:G=1RG = \frac{1}{R}Where:

  • GG is the electric conductance, and
  • RR is the electric resistance.

How to Convert:To convert between different units of electric conductance, follow these steps:

  1. Determine the Initial and Target Units: Identify the unit you have and the unit you want to convert to.

  2. Find Conversion Factors: Use conversion factors to convert between units. These conversion factors are based on the relationships between the units.

  3. Apply the Conversion Factor: Multiply the value you want to convert by the appropriate conversion factor. If you're converting from larger units to smaller units, you'll multiply. If you're converting from smaller units to larger units, you'll divide.

  4. Perform the Calculation: Apply the conversion factor to the value you want to convert to get the equivalent value in the desired unit.

Units Explanation:

  1. Siemens [S]: Electric conductance expressed in siemens, the standard SI unit used to measure conductance.
  2. Megasiemens [MS]: Electric conductance expressed in megasiemens, equal to one million siemens.
  3. Kilosiemens [kS]: Electric conductance expressed in kilosiemens, equal to one thousand siemens.
  4. Millisiemens [mS]: Electric conductance expressed in millisiemens, equal to one thousandth of a siemens.
  5. Microsiemens [µS]: Electric conductance expressed in microsiemens, equal to one millionth of a siemens.
  6. Ampere/Volt [A/V]: Electric conductance expressed in amperes per volt, representing the ratio of current to voltage and is equivalent to siemens.
  7. Mho [℧]: An alternate name for siemens, often used humorously or poetically.
  8. Gemmho: An alternate name for siemens, derived from the backward spelling of "ohm."
  9. Micromho: An alternate name for microsiemens.
  10. Abmho: Electric conductance expressed in abmhos, a unit used in the CGS electromagnetic unit system.
  11. Statmho: Electric conductance expressed in statmhos, a unit used in the CGS electromagnetic unit system.
  12. Quantized Hall Conductance: Conductance in the quantum Hall effect, characterized by the Hall conductance quantum (G0G_0) equal to e2/he^2/h, where ee is the elementary charge and hh is the Planck constant.

Understanding these units and the conversion process allows for precise measurement and manipulation of electric conductance across different scales and applications.


  1. Conversion from Siemens [S] to Millisiemens [mS]:1Siemens=1000Millisiemens1\, \text{Siemens} = 1000\, \text{Millisiemens}To convert 2 siemens to millisiemens:2Siemens×1000=2000Millisiemens2\, \text{Siemens} \times 1000 = 2000\, \text{Millisiemens}

  2. Conversion from Ampere/Volt [A/V] to Megasiemens [MS]:1Ampere/Volt=1Megasiemens1\, \text{Ampere/Volt} = 1\, \text{Megasiemens}To convert 5 amperes per volt to megasiemens:5Ampere/Volt×1=5Megasiemens5\, \text{Ampere/Volt} \times 1 = 5\, \text{Megasiemens}

By following these steps and using appropriate conversion factors, electric conductance values can be accurately converted between different units.
