Expert Answer:

Dear student,

The reciprocal of thermal conductivity is thermal resistivity, usually measured in kelvinmeters per watt (K·m·W−1). When dealing with a known quantity of material, its thermal conductance and the reciprocal property, thermal resistance, can be described.

Hence the lowest resistivity has the highest conductivity.

Hope this helps.
