Resistance is the hindrance offered by an object to the flow of current through it. Lower is the flow of current, higher is the resistance of a given material. 

SI unit of resistance is Ohm (Ω). It is resistance offered by an object when 1 volt potential difference is applied across it and 1 Ampere of current passes through it.
