Specific heat capacity = Time in seconds to heat 1 kg of material hy 1 degree.
Resistivity = Not a clue

Resistivity = how strongly a material opposes flow of electric current, resistance per unit length per unit cross sectional area

Resistivity is just the resistance of a material per square metre. I think you can use the formula to define it?

Resistivity = (resistance x cross-sectional area)/ length of material

Resistivity is constant for set materials. so copper has a set resistivity for example. Its equation is R=pl/a with p being that fancy p sign thing l being length and a being cross sectional area and R being resistance of course
