- A measure of the resistance between parallel edges of a thin film resistive material, such as a
__metal__or semiconductor. The resistance of a four-sided material is defined as the resistance, in ohms, multiplied by its__width__, and divided by its__length__. Since the length and width of a square are__equal__, the measured resistance value will be the same for any size square. The resistance of such a material could then be stated in ohms, but in this context is expressed in units of ohms per square.
