Ohm (Ω)

The ohm (Ω) is the unit of electrical resistance in the International System of Units (SI). It is named after German physicist Georg Simon Ohm.

The ohm is defined as an electrical resistance between two points of a conductor when a constant potential difference of one volt, applied to these points, produces in the conductor a current of one ampere, the conductor not being the seat of any electromotive force.


where V = volt, A = ampere, S = siemens, W = watt, s = second, F = farad, H = henry, C = coulomb, J = joule, kg = kilogram, m = meter.
