# Ohm

[ohm] /oʊm/

noun
1.
the standard unit of electrical resistance in the (SI), formally defined to be the electrical resistance between two points of a conductor when a constant potential difference applied between these points produces in this conductor a current of one ampere. The resistance in ohms is numerically equal to the magnitude of the potential difference. Symbol: Ω.

/əʊm/
noun
1.
the derived SI unit of electrical resistance; the resistance between two points on a conductor when a constant potential difference of 1 volt between them produces a current of 1 ampere Ω

n.

unit of electrical resistance, 1867, in recognition of German physicist Georg S. Ohm (1789-1854), who determined the law of the flow of electricity. Originally proposed as ohma (1861) as a unit of voltage. Related: ohmage; ohmic; ohmeter.

ohm (ōm)
n.
Symbol Ω
A unit of electrical resistance equal to that of a conductor in which a current of one ampere is produced by a potential of one volt across its terminals.
ohm
(ōm)
The SI derived unit used to measure the electrical resistance of a material or an electrical device. One ohm is equal to the resistance of a conductor through which a current of one ampere flows when a potential difference of one volt is applied to it.
Ohm, Georg Simon 1789-1854.
German physicist who discovered the relationship between voltage, current, and resistance in an electrical circuit, now known as Ohm’s law. The ohm unit of electrical resistance is named for him.
ohm [(ohm)]

The unit of electrical resistance, named after the nineteenth-century German physicist Georg Ohm.

unit
The MKS unit of electrical resistance. One Ohm is the resistance of a conductor across which a potential difference of one Volt produces a current of one Ampere. Named after Georg Simon Ohm.
