ohm

(ōm)
A unit used to measure the electrical resistance of a material. One ohm is equal to the resistance of a conductor through which a current of one ampere flows when a potential difference of one volt is applied to it.

ohm

1. The unit of electrical resistance.
2. (! ) A unit of electrical resistance. One ohm equals the resistance across which a potential difference of one volt produces a current flow of one ampere. Named after the German physicist G.S. Ohm (1787–1854).
