S. Ohm.] (Elec.) The standard unit in the measure of electrical resistance, being the resistance of a circuit in which a potential difference of one volt produces a current of one amp['e]re. As defined by the International Electrical Congress in 1893, and by United States Statute, it is a resistance substantially equal to 10^{9} units of resistance of the C. G. S. system of electro-magnetic units, and is represented by the resistance offered to an unvarying electric current by a column of mercury at the temperature of melting ice 14.4521 grams in mass, of a constant cross-sectional area, and of the length of 106.3 centimeters. As thus defined it is called the {international ohm}. {Ohm's law} (Elec.), the statement of the fact that the strength or intensity of an electrical current is directly proportional to the electro-motive force, and inversely proportional to the resistance of the circuit. From WordNet (r) 2.0 [wn]:noun 2: German physicist who formulated Ohm's Law (1787-1854) [syn: {Georg Simon Ohm}]From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (27 SEP 03) [foldoc]: Ohm The {MKS} unit of electrical resistance. One Ohm is the resistance of a conductor across which a {potential difference} of one {Volt} produces a {current} of one {Ampere}.
