Up until about the late 1970's the units of EC were micromhos per centimeter (Âµmhos/cm) after which they were changed to microSiemens/cm

1 ÂµS/cm = 1 Âµmho/cm.

CorrectionThis is true, but the answer and the question illustrate why the "mho" was changed to the "siemens": it's too easy to confuse "mho" and "ohm" Incidentally, the mho was intended to be the ohm spelled backwards, to illustrate that the mho is the inverse of the ohm, but as we see, this turned out to be more confusing than helpful.

The original question is how to convert ÂµS cm to ohm cm. I assume that the original poster wanted to convert ohm cm to ÂµS/cm (microSiemens divided by centimeters, not multiplied)

In that case, the answer is that S/cm are the inverse of Ohm cm. So:

1/ 1 megaohm cm = 1 microS/cm

To convert ohm centimeters to micro siemens centimeters, you can use the formula: 1 micro siemens/cm = 1 / (ohm/cm). For example, if you have a value of 100 ohm/cm, the conversion would be 1 / 100 = 0.01 micro siemens/cm.

The conductivity is measured in microSiemens per cm.

These are not SI units.

When they are in SI units, Conductivity = 1 / resistivity.

Conductivity (per 1m) = 1/ Resistivity (per 1 m)

Conductivity (per cm) = 1/ Resistivity (per 100 m)

50 microSiemens (= 20,000 ohms per 100m)

= 5000 microsiemens per meter

= 0.005 Siemens per m

= 200 ohms per meter (ohm/m)

300 microSiemens are 3,333 ohms per 100m.

= 30000 microSiemens per m

= 0.03 Siemens per m

= 33.33 ohms per meter (ohm/m)

it cannot be converted to ohms, but to ohm.m (i.e to resistivity and not resistance)

10000/microSiemens per cm = 1 ohm.m

then 10000/84 = 119 ohm.m

Divide the number by 1,000,000 (a million).
