Resistivity and resistance of a conductor are two diff. things. Resistance is the opposition to the flow of electrons (i.e., electrical current). Every substance has a certain amount of resistance. Resistance is measured in Ohms.


Resistivity is defined as the measure of the resistance a material imposes on current flow.
