conductivity

 [kon″duk-tiv´ĭ-te]
capacity for conduction.

con·duc·tiv·i·ty

(kon'dŭk-tiv'i-tē),
1. The power of transmission or conveyance of certain forms of energy, as heat, sound, and electricity, without perceptible motion in the conducting body.
2. The property, inherent in living protoplasm, of transmitting a state of excitation; for example, in muscle or nerve.

conductivity

/con·duc·tiv·i·ty/ (kon″duk-tiv´ĭ-te) the capacity of a body to transmit a flow of electricity or heat; the conductance per unit area of the body.

conductivity

(kŏn′dŭk-tĭv′ĭ-tē)
n. pl. conductivi·ties
1. The ability or power to conduct or transmit heat, electricity, or sound.
2. The conductance of a material.
3. Physiology The conductibility of a structure, especially the ability of a nerve to transmit a wave of excitation.

conductivity

the ability of an electric or other system to transmit sound, heat, light, or electromagnetic energy.

con·duc·tiv·i·ty

(kon'dŭk-tiv'i-tē)
1. The power of transmission or conveyance of certain forms of energy, such as heat, sound, and electricity, without perceptible motion in the conducting body.
2. The property, inherent in living protoplasm, of transmitting a state of excitation; e.g., in muscle or nerve.

conductivity

  1. the property of conducting an electric current.
  2. the passage of a physiological disturbance through tissue or a cell, as in a NERVE IMPULSE.

con·duc·tiv·i·ty

(kon'dŭk-tiv'i-tē)
The power of transmission or conveyance of energy, without perceptible motion in the conducting body.

conductivity,

n the capacity for conduction; ability to convey.
conductivity, electrical,
n the ability of a material to conduct electricity. Metals are usually good conductors, and nonmetals are poor conductors.
conductivity, thermal,
n the ability of a material to transfer heat. Thermal conductivity is of great importance in dentistry, where a low thermal conductivity is desirable in restorative material and a high thermal conductivity is desirable when soft tissue is covered.

conductivity

capacity for conduction.
