- n. 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. See Table at measurement.

- n. In the International System of Units, the derived unit of electrical resistance; the electrical resistance of a device across which a potential difference of one volt causes a current of one ampere. Symbol: Ω
from the GNU version of the Collaborative International Dictionary of English
- n. 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 ampére. As defined by the International Electrical Congress in 1893, and by United States Statute, it is a resistance substantially equal to 109 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.

- n. In electricity, the unit of resistance (see resistance).

- n. a unit of electrical resistance equal to the resistance between two points on a conductor when a potential difference of one volt between them produces a current of one ampere
- n. German physicist who formulated Ohm's law (1787-1854)
The unit of the resistance is called ohm in honour of the German physicist Georg Simon Ohm (1789 - 1854) and abbreviated by the Greek letter
And the scene I love the most, instead of saying "ohm," in their class, they say "bone".
So I understand what you're saying but you say simply -- "ohm", meditate, learn other disciplines instead of chasing money.
Turns out the name is a reference to "ohm," the common unit of electrical measure.
Sometimes my parents had us all sit in a meditative circle at their Buddha altar and "ohm".
Earth is having an ideal resistance of 1 ohm which is lower than the resistance of any high voltage circuit.
Like I said, I really hope that you bill hourly for that kind of bullshitting skill — but if so, I also hope that you get struck off soon. ohm says:
The Dutch east indies oil field were vital as well to ohm plans.
Fleet units dispatched to west PAC would have been attacked in transit by IJN the war would have been shorter as the roll back of ohm units would not have been so extensive, Singapore might not have fallen and THAT would have been a big bonus.
Much is riding on the outcome: the joule, watt, volt, farad, weber and ohm are only some of the units derived in part from the kilo.
