Frequency:
A measure of the ability of a material to carry electric current. For direct current, conductance is called conductivity and is equal to 1/R, where R is the resistance of the material. For alternating current, conductance is called admittance . Conductance is measured in mhos.

A measure of the ability of a substance to allow electric current to pass through in relation to the applied voltage (E). Conductance is the reciprocal of resistance (R), as measured in ohms ( ). Conductance is measured in mhos, which is ohms spelled backwards. (Isn't that clever?)
