This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Resistivity - (Measured in Ohm Meter) - Resistivity is the measure of how strongly a material opposes the flow of current through them.
Resistance - (Measured in Ohm) - Resistance is a measure of the opposition to current flow in an electrical circuit. Its S.I unit is ohm.
Electrode Cross-sectional Area - (Measured in Square Meter) - The Electrode Cross-sectional Area is the size of the electrodes used in an electrolytic cell.
Distance between Electrodes - (Measured in Meter) - The Distance between Electrodes is the separation between two parallel electrodes.
