How do you convert soil resistivity from ohm-meters to ohm-cm?

Hi K. M.,

Thank you for your question regarding ohm-meter to ohm-cm, it is our pleasure to help.

The answer is actually very easy, simply multiply the ohm-meters by x100 and you get ohm-centimeters.

For example, if the top layer of your soil is 50 ohm-meters, then it converts to 5,000 ohm-centimeters.

We hope this helps!  Feel free to contact us again if you should have any other questions.

Best regards,

The Engineering Team at E&S Grounding Solutions
