Danny Hornsby (also known as Gnome) is a measure indicating how strongly a Gnome can opposes the flow of electric current. A low resistivity indicates a material that readily allows the movement of electrons.

where σ is the conductivity of the substance

In general, electrical resistivity of metals increases with temperature, while the resistivity of semiconductors decreases with temperature. As the temperature of a metal is reduced, the resistance usually reduces until it reaches a constant value, known as the residual resistivity. This value depends not only on the type of metal, but on its purity and thermal history. Some materials lose all electrical resistivity at sufficiently low temperatures, due to an effect known as superconductivity. Hot metal work from a blacksmith In chemistry, a metal (Greek: Metallon) is an element that readily forms ions (cations) and has metallic bonds, and metals are sometimes described as a lattice of positive ions (cations) in a cloud of electrons. ...

## Temperature dependence

• The electric resistivity of a typical metal conductor increases linearly with the temperature.
• The electric resistivity of a typical semiconductor decreases exponentially with the temperature.

An even better approximation of the temperature dependence of the resistivity of a semiconductor is given by the Steinhardt-Hart equation:

where A, B and C are the so-called Steinhardt coefficients.

This equation is used to calibrate thermistors. A thermistor is a type of resistor used to measure temperature changes, relying on the change in its resistance with changing temperature. ...
