n.
1. Symbol G A measure of a material's ability to conduct electric charge; the reciprocal of the resistance.
2. Thermal conductance.

conductance

(kənˈdʌktəns)
n
(General Physics) the ability of a system to conduct electricity, measured by the ratio of the current flowing through the system to the potential difference across it; the reciprocal of resistance. It is measured in reciprocal ohms, mhos, or siemens. Symbol: G

con•duct•ance

(kənˈdʌk təns)

n.
(esp. in alternating current) the conducting power of a conductor, equal to the real part of the admittance, and, in a circuit with no reactance, equal to the reciprocal of the resistance. Symbol: G
