ABSTRACT Electrical and thermal conductivity studies play a vital role in the field of science and
technology. According to the conductivity terms, materials can be classified in to good conductors,
bad conductors, semiconductors and super conductors. In the free electron theory, electron only
acts as carrier and carries its energy from one point to another point either natural or forced. In
the present investigation, five renal stones are collected from the poor hard working males who are
affected with mineral deposition in the urinary tracts. The stones are collected from the hospital by
Lithotropic treatment process. Using two- probes method, the electrical conductivities are
measured at different temperatures. The thermal conductivity and temperature coefficients are
calculated. The results are reported and discussed.
