The unit of resistance. The electrical resistance between two points of a conductor where a constant difference of potential of 1 Volt applied between these points produces in the conductor a current of 1 Ampere, the conductor not being the source of any electromotive force. It can be represented by the formula V = I x R, where: V = Voltage I = Cur...

Unit of resistance. One ohm is the resistance value through which one volt will maintain a current of one amp. Calculation: Ohms = Volts divided by Amps.Â The ohm scale is a reverse one, i.e. Low numbers indicate heavy load, and high numbers indicate light Load. Zero ohms is a dead short. 500 ohms is the maximum a human or animal body can condu...
