The practical unit of resistance was called an ohm, that of the electric capacitance a farad.
Using the Wenner method of measuring a resistance in terms of a mutual inductance and a rate of rotation, their work gave a value of 0.999 994 absolute ohm for the new as-maintained unit of resistance at NBS.
Based on this principle, the calculable cross-capacitor could provide an alternative method of evaluating the unit of resistance based on straightforward measurements of length and time.

If these parts of the main-dial circuit have the correct ratio, the unit of resistance in which they are adjusted is immaterial.
