statsiemens (statS)

The statsiemens (symbolized statS) is the unit of conductance in the cgs (centimeter/gram/second) electrostatic system of units. It is equivalent to approximately 1.11265 x 10 -12 siemens (S) or 1.11265 picosiemens (pS). The siemens is the standard unit of conductance in the International System of Units ( SI ).

The statsiemens is an extremely small unit of conductance. In fact, an object with a conductance of 1 statS would make an excellent insulator or dielectric . In practical applications, the siemens, the millisiemens (mS) and the microsiemens (µS)are most often used to quantify conductance. For comparison, 1 statS = 1.11265 x 10 -6 µS = 1.11265 x 10 -9 mS.

Also see conductance , siemens , cgs or small-unit metric system , and International System of Units ( SI ).
