Expert Answer:

Resistance is a ratio of the degree to which an object opposes an electric current through it, measured in ohms.Resistivity is the ratio of the intensity of the electric field E at any point within the conductor and the current-intesity j at that point called 'specific  resistance or resistivity; of the conductor.
