Expert Answer
Yes, there is a difference between resistivity and resistance.
 
Resistivity of a conductor depends on the nature of its material and its temperature. It is independent of its dimensions, so it is a property of the material of the conductor.

Resistance of a conductor depends on the dimensions of the conductor, nature of its material and temperature. So, it is a property of the conductor.
