an instrument for measuring electrical resistance
An instrument used for direct measurement of the electrical resistance of a material or electronic component, usually in ohms. Ohmmeters typically use an ammeter to measure current through the material after it has been given some set voltage by the ohmmeter; the direct-current resistance of the sample can then be directly determined through Ohm’s law. Compare voltmeter.

[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 […]
