What Is the Definition of Ohms?


The SI unit of electrical resistance is ohm. It expresses the resistance in a circuit transmitting a current of one ampere when subjected to a potential difference of one volt. It may also refer to a lunar impact crater that is located on the far side of the moon.

Ask.com Answer for: what is the definition of ohms
the standard unit of electrical resistance in the International System of Units(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

Ohm is a unit of measuring the electrical resistance. It is named after the German physicist who contributed greatly to mathematics and measurement of electrical resistance. One ohm is equivalent to the resistance that produces one ampere current with a potential of one volt.

a really bad word I'm not allowed to type.
OHMS is an abbreviation for on Her Majesty's service; on His Majesty's service.
Ohm's law relates voltage (emf) to current and resistance. The law is generally written: V=IR.
So... Voltage (V) is an electrical measurement that is sort of like force or pressure. It provides the ability to move something (in the electrical case, electrons) but does not measure
