This fine result is the more gratifying since ohm's law is entirely empirical and does not rest at all upon logical deduction.
Wheatstone by his knowledge of ohm's law and the electro-magnet was probably able to enlighten him.
ohm's definition of electro-motive force, current strength and resistance eventuated into ohm's law.
We must therefore have a standard for the ohm, which is the measure of resistance.
Along the other side of the room were twenty-four cases, each containing four accumulators of under .005-ohm internal resistance.
In applying this illustration to the voltaic cell, we make use of ohm's law.
Like many another great discovery in physical science, ohm's work failed to receive the immediate appreciation which it deserved.
One of these methods depends upon an application of ohm's law.
Now connect our standard cell—one volt—through one ohm resistance and we have a current of one ampère.
This furlough was perhaps the most important event in ohm's life.
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.
