Siemens (S) is the unit of electrical conductance. Apart from this, it is a derived unit of electric admittance and electric susceptance in the International System of Units (SI).

Answer: The unit of conductance is Siemens (S).

Conductance is the reciprocals of resistance whereas admittance and susceptance are the reciprocals of impedance and reactance respectively. Siemens (S) unit is named after Ernst Werner von Siemens. The electrical conductivity is measured in units of siemens per meter. A device having the value of conductance of one siemen will increase the electric current by one ampere on the increase of one volt of electric potential difference across the device.


What is the Unit of Conductance?

Siemens (S) is the unit of electrical conductance. Siemen (S) for conductance (G) is given by S = A/V where A is the ampere, and V is the volt.
