Wheatstone by his knowledge of ohm's law and the electro-magnet was probably able to enlighten him.
We must therefore have a standard for the ohm, which is the measure of resistance.
In applying this illustration to the voltaic cell, we make use of ohm's law.
One of these methods depends upon an application of ohm's law.
This furlough was perhaps the most important event in ohm's life.
ohm continued his work at Nuremberg for more than fifteen years.
ohm's work at once attracted the attention that it deserved in England.
Up to the very last day of his life, ohm continued his lectures.
ohm is remembered as a teacher rather than as an educational administrator.
The success of ohm as a teacher was recognized on all sides.
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, 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. |
The unit of electrical resistance, named after the nineteenth-century German physicist Georg Ohm.
