The resistivity of a material is the resistance of a wire of that material of unitlength and unit cross-sectional area.
Electrical resistivity and its inverse, electrical conductivity, is a fundamental property of a material that quantifies how strongly it resists or conducts electric current. A low resistivity indicates a material that readily allows electric current. Resistivity is commonly represented by the Greek letter ρ

electrical resistance of a conductor of unit cross-sectional area and unit length.
it is the measure of opposision of flow of electron

it depends only on material
only
