Large projection-apparatus for electric lamp of 30 Ampère with triple collecting lens of 210 mm aperture.
No less an authority than the illustrious Ampère declared her to be "a genius in geometry."
The discoveries of Ampère as to the laws of electricity have been likened to the discovery of Newton of the law of gravitation.
This stimulated others, and Ampère applied it to the galvanometer the same year.
Now connect our standard cell—one volt—through one ohm resistance and we have a current of one Ampère.
With the means at Ampère's disposal, we may say that this was impossible.
Ampère entitled his immortal work, 'Théorie des phénomènes électrodynamiques, uniquement fondée sur l'expérience.'
In spite of its apparent complexity, Ampère's theory greatly extends our mathematical vision into the interior of the molecules.
We do honor to the name of Ampère whenever we measure an electric current, for electric currents are measured in "amperes."
This would no longer be true, if one accepts the theory of Ampère, if there were open currents.
1881, "the current that one volt can send through one ohm," from French ampère, named for French physicist André-Marie Ampère (1775-1836). Shortened form amp is attested from 1886.

A unit of electric current in the meter-kilogram-second system, equal to the current that, flowing in two parallel wires one meter apart, produces a force of 2 × 10-^{7} newtons per meter.
A unit in the International System specified as one International coulomb per second and equal to 0.999835 ampere.
